The Florida State Seminoles: FSU's 
Tradition of Tribute 

The Seminole Tribe of Florida are 
a courageous, tenacious and deter- 
mined people who, against great 
odds, have struggled successfully to 
preserve their culture and to live their 
lives according to their traditions and 

As history shows, they are a peo- 
ple who have resolutely refused to 
accept defeat, whether at the hands 
of the U.S. military or when faced with 
unforgiving wilderness of the Florida 

For nearly six decades, Florida 
State University has proudly identified 
itself with this heroic tribe. The name 
"Florida State Seminoles" was select- 
ed by vote of the university's student 
body in 1947, shortly after FSU be- 
came a coeducational institution and 
established a football team. The name 
was selected specifically to honor the 
indomitable spirit of the Florida Semi- 
noles - those people whom the Sem- 
inole Tribe of Florida refers to as the 
"few hundred unconquered Seminole 

men, women and children left - all hid- 
ing in the swamps and Everglades of 
South Florida." 

FSU's use of the name and sym- 
bols honors the strength and bravery of 
these people, who never surrendered 
and ultimately persevered. 

For more than 30 years, FSU has 
worked closely with the Seminole Tribe 
of Florida to ensure the dignity and pro- 
priety of the various Seminole symbols 
used by the university. The university's 
goal is to be a model community that 
treats all cultures with dignity while cel- 
ebrating diversity. 

The Seminole Tribe of Florida has 
been recognized by the FSU faculty 
with the Mores Torch award, in recog- 
nition of contributions to and support 
of the university's tradition. The tribe 
has also been recognized for its sup- 
port of academics and athletics with 
the prestigious Moore-Stone award. 

As of 2005, seven members of the 
Seminole Tribe of Florida were enrolled 
as students. In addition, one member 
of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma 
was a student. 


L egacy Wal k 

Florida State University has been paving the way since 
1851. In October 2004, the university unveiled Legacy Walk, a 
historical tour of campus that focuses on its architecture, sculp- 
ture and green spaces. 

The first segment of the Walk, the Eppes Phase, is named 
for Francis Eppes, mayor of Tallahassee whose support was cru- 
cial to the establishment of the university. 

Encompassing the easternmost portion of campus, the 
Walk begins at the statue of Eppes located near the entrance to 
the Westcott Building. 

The path is embedded with symbols and lined with bricks 
and banners guiding visitors past many of the oldest and most his- 
toric buildings on campus before terminating at Dodd Hall. Raised 
brick podia containing maps and important information about 
people and events are located at intervals along the walk. 

The second phase, the Student Legacy Walk, begins at 
the Landis Green Legacy Fountain Sculptures. 

As the name suggests, the Student Legacy Walk passes 
through the core of student activity, highlighting student leaders 
of the past and serving as a living legacy to current and future 

Lined with banners depicting campus life, the Student Leg- 
acy Walk guides visitors from Landis Green north toward the Bel- 
lamy Building, around to newly renovated grounds behind the 
Crenshaw Building and Moore Auditorium, and circles the integra- 
tion Statue before wrapping around the Student Services Building 
and ending back at Landis. 

When all phases are completed, the Legacy Walk will link 

the Westcott Building with the University Center. 

H eritage Protoco l 

Building Florida State University's great heritage has taken 
generations. That heritage must be preserved for future genera- 
tions through locating, cataloging and preserving important doc- 
uments and artifacts. 

That is the goal of the Heritage Protocol, an Internet-ac- 
cessible database that assembles information and displays to the 
world a virtual museum of images of the University's important 
historic treasures. 

Assembling the images and locations of artifacts involves 
a corps of campus ambassadors as well as outreach to alumni 
groups and friends off-campus.

Tally Ho 1961 

There are many reasons to be proud to be a Seminole, including Florida State University's 
rich and interesting history. FSU started in 1851 as the all-male Seminary West of the Suwannee. 
The first classes were offered in 1857, a year before women were allowed a separate depart- 
ment of the school known as the Female Institute. This department became inactive, however, 
during the Civil War. Renamed the Florida Military and Collegiate Institute, one of the first ROTC 
programs in the nation was established. The school produced cadets that would fight in the 
Battle of Natural Bridge in 1865, which has entitled FSU's ROTC units to have such a description 
and to this day hang a battle banner under their own. The Female Institute reopened in 1866, 
and in 1882, the entire school became co-educational. In 1901, this ever-changing school was 
renamed The Florida State College. 

In 1905, legislature decided to recognize higher education in Florida due to a growing 
need of funds, and in that same year, through the Buckman Act, it designed Florida State Col- 
lege as an all-female school and renamed to The Florida Female College, The name did not sit 
well at all with friends and supporters of the college, and so it was renamed the Florida State 
College of Women. The school continued to grow as a female college until 1947, when legisla- 
ture agreed to make both UF and FSCW co-educational schools, finally receiving the name The 
Florida State University. The year 1947 is one of the most significant in FSU history: the first football

game was played at the school, and through a student vote, the Seminole was elected as FSU's 
official mascot. 

Despite the changes, many things have been preserved throughout its history. The digni- 
ty, tradition, and pride encased within the walls of the campus have survived many generations, 
Through times of war and peace, economic hardship and prosperity, social upheaval, and the 
powerful influence of time, the FSU spirit has endured,

Renegade 1988 

"The Book is Back!" Finally the Renegade yearbook is back at Florida State 
University, after hiding dormant for the past decade. 

With the reemergence of the yearbook, it's interesting to know how the year- 
book originally started. When Florida State was originally founded it was called Sem- 
inary West of the Suwannee as a counterpart to the Seminary East, now known as 
University of Florida. It was here that the first yearbook was established called the 
Argo in 1900. When the school became a women's college in 1909 the yearbook 
was renamed Flastacowo, an acronym for Florida State College for Women. Flasta- 
cowo is the longest running yearbook in the school's history, published for 38 years. 

In 1948 the college was officially named Florida State University and the year- 
book was again renamed, this time called the Tally-Ho. After 35 years of publication 
it became an award winning yearbook but due to a controversial editor the program 
was ended. The FSU yearbook could not be kept down and six years later was start- 
ed again and was named Artifacts but was only published fours times before it was 
renamed, yet again to Renegade whose first edition was available in 1987-88. The 
name Renegade references Chief Oceola's horse, a Florida State traditional icon. 

The 1991 edition of the Renegade won best of show at the Associated Col- 
legiate Press Convention and received the "Pulitzer" of yearbook awards, The Pace- 
maker. And now after a ten year hiatus the Renegade has returned. 

"Just as history is sometimes as pleasent in recollection as in the making, we 
hope that these pages may help to keep in you memories the days, bright or shad- 
owed, which have become the past instead of the present," the Flastcow 1926

Orientation; as a senior in high school this word probably caused you to feel several emo- 
tions ranging from accomplishment, excitement, and maybe even nervousness. After receiving 
your acceptance letter into Florida State University, the only thing keeping you from becoming a 
Seminole is Orientation. Orientation is part of a student's official acceptance into the University, 
meant to be both fun and informative. For students starting their first year in college, it can be 
overwhelming: the information comes in rapid fire. Sometimes it is hard to know what questions 
to ask, but then there are the questions every student seems to ask. What is the FSU card for? 
How can I get involved? Is parking really as bad as people tell me? Who better to answer these 

questions than individuals who have up close and personal experience with these things? None 
other than Orientation Leaders! Orientation Leaders provide honest experiences from a student's 
perspective and give incoming students a peak into campus life, 

Each new student is assigned to a group headed by an Orientation leader. Their Leader 
helps them throughout Orientation by showing them where things are, providing them with valu- 
able information about Florida State, and answering questions. Students aren't the only ones who 
have questions and concerns about the University though, so family members go through their 
own Orientation process as well. They are assigned, just like students, to a group headed by an 
Orientation Leader. The purpose of having different groups with different Orientation Leaders is to 
make such a large university seem smaller. "Orientation made me connect with the University, it 
made me feel welcomed and realize that even though this is a big campus there is always some- 
thing for everyone to do," Carolina Orrego a senior reviews her time as an Orientation Leader. 

The Office of Orientation does everything it can to make sure Orientation is as short and 
informative as it possibly can be while still being fun. The Orientation Leaders keep up the stu- 
dents' morale throughout the long hard day and they even perform a skit for the students, which 
encompasses all aspects of student life. At the end of the two days a speaker is brought in to 
really make sure the new students understand all the hard work it is going to take to get through 
college. The speaker is also there to help them realize that they can do it as long as they stay 
focused. Orientation at FSU leaves students and parents alike feeling safe, secure, and excited to 
get the school year started!

Florida State University Housing has the best customized communities with diverse Resident 
Halls in order to help make the transitions of college as smooth as possible. University Housing pro- 
vides a comfortable environment that promotes educational and social growth for any student 
living in any of the many Resident Halls on campus. 

"I met everyone I care about by living and working on campus/' senior Erica Salmeri talks 
about her housing experience, "I am who I am because I lived on campus." 

"Dorms," an often used term, are part of FSU's total university experience. On-campus 
housing has the convenience of living near classes and the opportunity to participate in special 
developmental programs within Residence Halls. Residence Halls allow students to meet a vari- 
ety of diverse people, build social skills within their hall communities by meeting new friends, and 
attend campus events, and in order to become accustomed to FSU's enthusiastic environment. 
University Housing offers various living and learning communities which offers traditional Resident 
Hall living with the options of suite, community, and apartment-style living for students. 

Each residence hall has unique attributes to meet students' individual needs. University 
Housing complements the academic and personal interests of FSU students by offering special 
developmental programs within the residence halls called Living Learning Communities. Specifi- 
cally designed for first-year students, the Learning Communities at Florida State University help 
contribute to the student's overall growth and development. In addition to residing in a close-knit 
supportive community, learning community participants are given the opportunity to network 


Kathi Weaver 

with faculty and interact with other students who share common academic interests. Through FSU 
Housing students, aren't just living together, they're learning together. 

"The housing department strives to help ease the transition for new students entering col- 
lege. Living in the Residence Halls is a great way to make new friends and get involved in campus 
life," Rachel Siditsky, the night staff coordinator for FSU Housing summarizes the advantages of 
living on campus. 

With all the conveniences of on-campus living, there is the freedom of being on your own 
and supporting yourself which off-campus living provides. Off campus living offers a housing op- 
tion with some amenities such as the addition of swimming pools, work-out rooms and computer 
labs. Some of the most popular off-campus living includes Frog Pond, Seminole Suites, Southgate, 
and Heritage Grove. 

No matter if the outcome is off or on campus, personalization is the key to making any 
place "home."

"The Florida State University International Programs is committed to provide a quality inter- 
national learning environment where students are challenged to be learners, leaders, achievers 
and contributors within a global community," is the mission statement of the study abroad pro- 
gram at FSU. Florida State University's students have almost 50 years of experience with studying 
abroad programs and offers explorations in over 20 different countries, Students can study for a 
semester or an entire year in countries such as Spain, England, Panama, Costa Rica, Italy, Ireland, 
Czech Republic, Switzerland, China, Japan, Lebanon, and even Croatia. Some students study 
abroad to help them focus on learning and becoming fluent in a language, while others use the 
opportunity to take part in an in-depth study of their majors. "There is no better way to learn an- 
other language than living where it is spoken; no better way to expand perspective than by living 
outside the familiar," The Director of International Programs, Jim Pitts explains the true advantage 
of the study abroad program. 

Students who wish to go abroad but don't want to take classes have an option to partici- 
pate in an internship geared towards their desired profession. Internships are available for several 
areas of study and fields. The study abroad internship program can be described as "real work 
experience around the world." These remarkable opportunities are for both undergraduate and 
graduate students to work within influential organizations and dynamic corporations, while at the 
same time earning academic credit toward an FSU degree. 

Internships are integral to FSU's global perspective, offering students not only equivalent 
career experience, but more intense cultural interaction at the same time. The result can be re- 

Sara Gelber 


spectful job placements in three major world cities: London, England; Panama City, Republic of 
Panama; and Valencia, Spain. 

Being ranked one of the top study-abroad programs in the country, Florida State has ap- 
plicants from universities all over the country. With all of the great countries available to visit, the 
study abroad program makes it seemingly impossible to decide where to go, "Studying abroad 
really gives you the experience of the world from a unique perspective. You absorb a culture that 
is so different from your own; yet after your time there, it becomes yours as well. It expands your 
mind's eye, and really you can never be given any greater chance in life," senior Amy Bowman 
looks back on her time in London and the impact of studying abroad. In the twenty-first century 
students must be able to understand and perceive global change, and the Florida State Univer- 
sity International Programs are dedicated to exposing students to international cultures, lifestyles 

and languages to help spark this understanding. 

Students who study in London, England 
attend classes Monday through Thursday 
where they take group excursions to plac- 
es such as Oxford to learn more about the 
culture which they are studying in.

"These are best years of your life", is a cliche college students frequently hear from nostalgic 
parents and recent grads struggling to adjust to entry level boredom. At the same time, it is impos- 
sible not appreciate the resonance of such a comment for anyone who fully experienced college. 
University culture thrives on a very important rite of passage; living away from home. Learning is not 
purely an activity of the academic variety, it happens at bistros, bars, coffee shops, conversations 
at Strozier, ballgames, in painful breakups or during less than dignified adventures with roommates 
and friends. 

A great party, paying a water bill for the first time, an unforgettable mishap at work, or tak- 
ing risks either intentionally or coerced by persuasive partners in crime, forges memories. Although 
hard work is an essential component to any success in undergraduate study, occasionally purging 
the frustration is a necessary evil. Countless papers, projects, and quizzes are departmental require- 
ments however the experience of sharing in the joy, exuberance, and strife with friends while stum- 
bling on the path toward higher education either on a hike, at a game, show, or over a few bever- 
ages is a watermark on the syllabus. Some of the stories are cleared for Thanksgiving banter while 
others are more reserved for a rendezvous with a college cohort at happy hour years down the 
road. The students at Florida State University help to brighten up Tallahassee's "Limelight" whether 

Jason K. Smith 


it entails: kayaking at the reservation, lazy days on the Ocholockonee or the Suwanee, drinking at 
the bars, dancing at the clubs with painted ladies or in fountains, late night movies, late night bowl- 
ing, parties, flip cup, beer pong, two for ones, safe bus, party bus, bull rides and karaoke; really bad 
karaoke. All the activities embrace a different meaning; that builds bonds, shapes the identity of the 
student body, and congeal the city's culture. Whether it is night or day, weekday or weekend; the 
semester's benchmarks are not only for fulfilling credit hours. 

Without a doubt, Tally is a great town with beautiful parks, gorgeous trees, and something to 
satisfy the penchant of even the most fickle hearted; it just takes a little searching. Counting down 
the days until the weekend arrives, is a Monday morning ritual for some and a literally a full-time gig 
for others that demands proper planning and scheduling where to go and with whom. The great 
thing about Tallahassee is that there is always a unique hangout that satisfies anyone's party pal- 
ate, If Playboy's top meat market is your thing, there's Bullwinkle's. For the sports and Tuesday night 
enthusiast, AJ's is the place and the Irish Pub is for the wicked who don't feel like minding their P's 
and Q's. Go to Stetsons when it's not the Moon or for some darts at the Palace Saloon. The place to 
dance of course is Chubby's, Yianni's, Element, or Clyde's, while the classic live music hubs of Talla- 
hassee (Beta Bar, Warehouse, and Floyds) always feature flourishing local and nationally recognized 
acts. Pockets is not only for pool; one night a week some of the most horrifying or most talented 
karaoke troubadours can be heard. Or lacing up the boots for some midnight bowling at Seminole 
Bowl can always score a perfect night. Whatever it is, was, or will be happens in the most amazing 
four years of your life, so be glad it was as a Seminole dancing around a Tallahassee fire.

press school spirit. 

As another school year comes to an end at Florida State, so does another year of fashion. 
From oversized sunglasses to cowboy boots, Florida State students have, as usual, stayed abreast 
the latest trends. 

The year started off hot, but students kept their eyes protected with Jackie O style oversized 
sunglasses, and of course aviators were still popular. As fall approached, prairie skirts were every- 
where in voile, chiffon, and other lightweight fabrics. Prairie skirts were just the beginning of a huge 
western trend this year. Cowboy boots were the boots to wear this past autumn, and they were 
matched with bohemian accessories with a western flair. Also popular in the accessories category 
was everything metallic. Belts in gold and sliver were spotted everywhere from class to clubs. As 
the wintertime hit, some students pulled out last year's UGGs, but even UGG Boots updated their 
look, with a slouchier model, reminiscent of the western craze. Sheepskin UGGs were decorated 
with over spilled shearing, making them slightly more interesting than last year's model. When the 
weather was less extreme, many female students used shrugs to keep warm, which came in all 
shapes and styles. They varied in decoration too, from sequins to argyle. Many were crocheted, 
which may explain the sudden popularization of crochet needles sprouting up all over campus. 
Cropped cover-ups were most popularly paired with longer tees underneath, which in the past 
were much less available. The spring brought in espadrilles, but kept with the cropped trend. Ca- 
pris remained popular, as did longer ^boy-style' shorts and skirts providing a little more than just 
minimal coverage.

Of course, we can't forget the men. While polo shirts paired with jeans and flip flops may 
never go out of style on Florida State's campus, some of the male student body took a bolder 
approach and purchased shorts made with seersucker material. Seersucker is a light, thin fabric 
with a crinkled surface that you may not have seen since your baby days. However, the men may 
be on to something. The material was also a popular pick for sundresses as the weather warmed 
up in Tallahassee. 

Possibly the most startling trend experienced on Florida State's campus this year, was the 
shade of brown. Shirts everywhere popularized the phrase, Brunette is the new blonde, as well as 
many, heads of hair. Blondes everywhere became bottled brunettes, and brunettes retaliated by 
going a shade darker. Paired with chopped bangs, and shorter cuts, this year was a far cry from 
standard for hair. 

It was a good year at Florida State for trend spotters and risk takers, and as another year 
comes and goes, we can proudly acknowledge a change in ourselves, reflected on the outside. 
Slightly more mature, slightly more respectable, but sometimes, just more fun. 

Cars constantly enter and exit 
the parking garages, it is imper- 
ative that students who want 
good parking get to campus 
early in the morning. 

To walk, ride, or drive? 
The new parking garage 
nearthe medical building 
is a sigh of relief of the ex- 
pansion of campus and 
demands of students. 

Here's a simple formula: FSU plus parking equals problem, Parking and Transportation 
services are providing solutions all across the board, and over the next five years, the Cam- 
pus Master Plan will drive the parking problem out completely. 

In 2006, the campus is covered by 13,995 parking spots (3,800- student, 4,200- fac- 
ulty/staff, and 6,000- meter/service/visitor). At the time of press, garage number four is 
scheduled to be in operation by December taking over the corner of Macomb and Tennes- 
see streets. An effort to create a pedestrian campus by Parking and Transportation has the 
majority of campus parking lots migrating towards the perimeter of FSU's footprint. 

The busing system has also undergone changes. Smaller, garnet upholstered buses 
are scheduled to be in use for the Seminole Express routes that circulate across campus as 
soon as April. These buses, while not as high capacity, will skeet past the sluggish, oversized 
buses that have frequented their routes between 7:30 a.m. - 6 p.m. The routes will remain 
the same: Garnet, Gold, Tomahawk, and Renegade. 

Another part of the Master Plan already in the works is the Heritage Walkway. The 
Walkway is a dedication to alumni, paved with the same deep red masonry that gives Flori- 
da State distinction from other campuses. The project, being completed in sections, begins 
at the archway to the Westcott Fountain, makes its way through the center of campus via 
the Oglesby Union, connects to the newly erected memorial overlooking Woodward Av- 
enue. From there, it will hook up to the Florida State Women's Crest Fountain soaking the 

^^^^ Henry ueane 


grass and concrete around it, and finally to its ending point at the new Athletic Administra- 
tion building. 

Efforts to beautify this Civil War-aged campus have nearly tripled in the past two 
years from previous ones; students in the next five years may find a campus that is not only 
scholastic eye candy, but also one that takes special care to keep it free of traffic while 
also getting everyone to class. Mr. Anse Cates, President of Parking and Transportation Ser- 
vices, indicates that negotiations are in the air with StarMetro (TalTran of a different name) 
to run constant shuttle buses to key, high traffic developements such as The Commons, The 
Preserve, Tuscany, and Heritage Grove to cut commuting down drastically. "We hope to 
ease Tallahassee's already overworked roadways and curb traffic to and from campus," Mr. 
Anse Cates says of the negotiations. 

The 22,000 students that live within one mile of campus may be holding in a breath, 
but a sigh of relief is in sight.

The Student Government Association has for many years been an active force in contribut- 
ing to the students at Florida State University. Without them, many of the things offered at Florida 
State would not otherwise exist. When compared to the United States government, one will find 
that the two are more alike than they are different. Besides having three branches (the legislative, 
executive, and judicial) like the U.S. government, within this service there are leaders who act as 
the voice of the students. And for these groups of people the needs of those individuals are their 
primary concerns. S.G.A. has willingly taken their position as leaders and in the process created a 


4/ vmcz T&t- W & 
Student Government Association 

campus that serves those would in no other way be heard. Among those that have been aided 
are the undergraduate students. 

Have you ever ridden the S.A.F.E. bus, an operation whose purpose is solely for the safety/ 
protection of those students who lack their own transportation? Well, if you were not aware, it is 
the Student Government Association that provides such a connection. What about the Oglesby 
Union? S.G.A. funds the union where at some point every student ha spent time. In addition to 
those things S.G.A. has fought to have hours in the computer lab extended during the week of 
exams, fought to protect the students when there was to be a cut in financial aid, and are pres- 
ently fighting to decrease the cost of printing. These are only a few of their deeds to this school; 
the list goes on and on. Their work never goes unnoticed for they have been a crucial variable 
in this gigantic equation. And with several agencies such as Black Student Union, Hispanic/Latino 
Student Union, Jewish Student Union, and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Student Union 
everyone is represented and no one goes unnoticed. With each task they take on a huge part 
of their heart comes out. The passion of S.G.A. and their ability to put their sweat into task being 
taken on makes them incredible leaders, and above all, incredible people. 

"S.G.A. is an outlet for students to express the opinions and concerns about student life 
on campus. The FSU Student Government Association's motto is "Students Working for Students" 
and this exactly what we are. We hope that future students continue to utilize S.G.A. as an outlet 
to improving relations between faculty, staff, and students here on campus," said Christopher M.

The Union is the center of activity of the university, enduring the most foot traffic of the 
entire campus. The Ogelsby Union is the best place to promote your organization, political 
views, upcoming event, or simple opinion. Any person who has experienced the Union on a 
Free Market Wednesday knows that it is like no other day of the week. Stepping into the court- 
yard, students are overwhelmed by the bustling atmosphere, For any organization wanting to 
publicize, students desiring to peruse the vendors, or simply socialize, Wednesdays at the Union 
is the place to go. 

Some go directly to the courtyard to partake in activities, while others take the long 
way around to avoid the constant push of fliers for the next upcoming show, coupons off pizza, 
and organization representatives trying to pursue the perfect candidates for their organization. 
Whichever route taken, Market Wednesdays are a surprising mix of the campus for first-timers, 
a slice of diverse student body of FSU all in one place. 

The market vendors offer a variety of products and services such as DVDs, CDs, post- 
ers, TMT transportation, paintings, clothes, flip-flops, sunglasses, and jewelry. Unique items not 
found anywhere else are at Market Wednesdays. The Union on Wednesdays are more than just 
a flee market, but therapy for students who are swamped and tied up with academic obliga- 
tions. Most students take a moment out of their day to enjoy themselves in the many Market 
Wednesday events. The most popular being the 12- 1pm activity hour, in which one or a group 
of organizations can have a DJ, perform dance routines or hold a rally to name a few. Many 

Step^Righf WR

students are accustomed to seeking refuge in the Union between classes to take a break from 
the monotonies of a day's routine. 

At Market Wednesday there is something for most everyone and it is has truly become 
a staple of the Florida State University community that will continue for years to come. The 
combination of registered student organizations, market vendors, and the bustling traffic makes 
the Union "the place" to be on Wednesdays. Whether you are finding out about organizations, 
shopping, or just enjoying the atmosphere, there is room for you at Market Wednesdays.

Union Productions is an umbrella over numerous organizations that have been a way for 
Florida State to entertain as well as educate its students. The Union hosts Market Wednesdays 
where anyone can rent tables that sell DVDs, posters, sunglasses, hand crafted goods, and even 
hear some live music. Located in the Union is the Art Center where students, faculty, and even 
the public can take classes in ceramics, photography, painting, drawing, glass fusing, stain glass, 
mosaic tile art, and jewelry. There is also the Oglesby Gallery that holds faculty shows, traveling 
exhibitions, and local exhibits featuring the work of local artists. 

Tucked away behind dark plate-glass in the Union, Club Downunder brings nationally known 
and local bands, comedians, organization events, and karaoke to the Florida States Community. 
Shows are free for students with valid FSU ID and a minimal fee for the public for ages 18+. The 
club also sells food and beer to those attending the shows. 

Crenshaw lanes is Florida State's very own bowling and billiards center. Programs include a 
number of bowling leagues, billiards tournaments, intramurals, parties, cosmic bowling, late night 
programming and open bowling. Crenshaw Lanes is a popular party spot for student and university 
groups, but also serves as the home to the elite FSU Bowling Team. 

The Student Life Building contains one of the nation's leading campus movie programs that 
show blockbuster and Indie films free to students in their state-of-the-art movie theater. With mov- 
ies showing about five times a week, it's no wonder that the cinema is so popular on campus. 

The Student Activities Center helps manage, create, and publicize student organizations 
and activities on campus. They offer many services such as event planning, co-sponsorship, office 

Lenii Mcaneney 

space, and creating organizations websites. 

The Student Government Association is a way of self-governing its students in hopes to bet- 
ter the student body. They have a voice and representation on the Florida State University Board 
of Trustees, the FSU Athletic Board, the Florida Student Association and general campus wide 
committees and commissions. SGA is also responsible for the funding and operation of campus 
entities such as the Leach Center, the Student Life Building, the S.A.F.E. Connection Service, and 
the Oglesby Student Union.

Undeniably, Doak Campbell is one of the most impressive stadiums in the nation and 
possesses an iconic status amongst college football enthusiasts across the country. However, 
the inspiration for most of the Florida State University spirit is derived from the Seminole Indian 
Tribe. Every athletic team strives to embody the noble tribe's passion and vigor for life in ev- 
ery contest. Each individual or squad, proudly adorning the garnet and gold colors, begins 
every practice and enters every game with the mind-set that endurance, strength, honor, 
and sportsmanship are the most important qualities of a competitor. That consciousness not 
only swirls around the practice fields, weight rooms and sidelines of the varsity athletes, but isj 
strengthened by a devout student body, alumni and surrounding Tallahassee community. 

Although the Noles' notoriety of being fierce warriors strikes fear in the soul of the oppos- 
ing teams, a deafening war chant bellowing from the belly of the stands always rattles visiting 
teams with the powerful bond the fans have with the players. Bodies painted garnet and gold, 
men showered in glitter, "Game Day" stickers from Bill's Bookstore, and buttons proudly declar- 
ing, "We Love Bobby!" are popular costumes and campaign trinkets adorned on game day. 
Worn to demonstrate Nole solidarity but are also implicitly designed to impersonate the cher- 
ished Seminole tribe's traditional ceremonial garb which show pride in our history and colors.

The Seminole Fanship demands dealing with obstacles such as scorching August heat, 
rainy days in the Spring and chilly November nights, but their cheers scarcely subside. However, 
whenever the band strikes up the war chant, the entire Seminole nation coalesces to muster 
up a tidal wave of noise, momentarily distracting the other teams from their game strategy 
and weakening the defense to maximize the chances for victory. Also, the crowd involvement 
ignites the effervescent hope in the chests of all Seminole athletes. Any player's confidence is 
instantly confirmed with every glance to the stands; armed with the comfort that every friend, 
roommate, parent, professor and colleague is standing beside them even in the bleakest of 
scenarios. Recently, Coach Bowden expressed his appreciation of the fan's fervor after one 
of his football team's notoriously challenging games against Miami declaring that it was the 
loudest he had ever heard Doak Campbell roar. Also, with continued support from the Semi- 
nole Boosters regardless of the outcome; win or loss, the fans and Tallahassee community will 
always be a member of FSU athletics. Any avid sports fan would be hard-pressed not to recog- 
nize that the Seminole war chant is one of the most identifiable, prolific, and powerful symbols 
of excellence in the NCAA. 

No matter where Seminoles travel to; whether it is Manhattan or Madrid, their legacy, 
grace, and spirit is alongside for the trip. Because many fans claim that it is their job to guard 
the goal post at the end of a game, every person in the stands takes credit for the botched 
Miami field goal in 2005 that quelled the hurricane wind.

What would a Saturday in the fall be without tailgating? On the day of a home game in 
Tallahassee, "Club Publix" is sold out of hamburger buns, parking spots are nowhere to be found, 
and Bill's Bookstore is packed with fans stocking up on Seminole gear. Regardless of what time 
kickoff is, dedicated Seminole fans-young and old-don't miss an opportunity to gather together 
before the game. Even residence halls and campus organizations get in on the fun by cooking 
hotdogs and hamburgers to keep the student section energized at the game. Dedicated alumni 
who are big supporters get excited to tailgate in style in the shadow of Doak Campbell Stadium 
by scouting out the best spots. Most Seminole fans have been collecting garnet and gold es- 
sentials for years, and all know how to show their spirit because, "once a Seminole, always a 

All around campus and in parking lots, garnet and gold tents are scattered among the 
green grass. Matching chairs, coolers, cups, plates, flags, blown-up Seminole Warriors and FSU 
aprons are just a few of the essentials found throughout the land of tailgaters spread across cam- 
pus. Some tailgaters even find a way to incorporate spirit into their food, from garnet and gold 
fruit salad to hamburgers branded with the FSU logo. Tailgating does not stop even once the 
game has begun. No matter what time fans leave the game, they surely will find other fans listen- 
ing to the game on the radio from the comfort of their tailgating atmosphere. Some tailgates will 
last late into the night extending their Seminole pride as long as their bodies will let them. Before

Florida State prides itself on its spirit and heritage, both which are celebrated during Home- 
coming week with the theme "Live for the Garnet and Gold," 2005's exciting week of Home- 
coming activities started out Sunday October 23rd, with the traditional War Chant Concert with 
featured song artist, Teairra Mari, Admission to the War Chant Concert was two canned goods to 
contribute to the Second Harvest Food Bank, 

The excitement continued Monday with FSU's Service Day to benefit Tallahassee's Girls 
and Boys Club. To raise funds several student organizations assembled a children's carnival, which 
included old-time carnival exhibits for the children to have fun and soak in the FSU spirit, First place 
Service Day winners included for the Chief Division: Alpha Chi Omega, A K D Phi, Fiji, and Alpha 
Epsilon Pi and for the Tomahawk Division: Catholic Student Union and the Spear Division: McCollum 
Hall. Tuesday was kicked off with the introduction of the new Renegade Rumble Tournament in 
which for the Chief Division: 

Alpha Delta Pi, KA, and Sigma Nu and the Tomahawk Division: Baptist Collegiate Ministries took 
first place. The Renegade Rumble included inflatable games such as jousting or boxing, with music 
provided by 100,7 The Beat, Wednesday was full of stars at the "A Night at the Oscars" skit perfor- 
mances at The Moon where Chief Division: Delta Zeta, Alpha Phi Alpha, and Phi Delta Theta and 
the Tomahawk Division: Catholic Student Union took first place. Thursday, the Black Student Union 
took the night and hosted a successful concert featuring rap artist YoungBloodz. 

Friday was the peak of Homecoming week for Seminole fans. The annual parade included 
over 120 floats along with Chief Osceola, Renegade and the Marching Chiefs. Taking home first 

place awards for their festive and extravagant floats were in the Chief Division: Gamma Phi Beta, 
Tau Epsilon Pi, Tau Kappa Epsilon, and Phi Mu Alpha and for the Tomahawk Division: Catholic Stu- 
dent Union. The week of Seminole spirit awakened FSU pride in students and organizations. At the 
top of the spirit pole are in the Chief Division: Alpha Delta Pi, Kappa Alpha, and Sigma Nu, in the 
Tomahawk Division: the Catholic Student Union, and the Spear Division: Kellum Hall. 

The Homecoming week of activities was finished with a bang at PowWow at the Leon 
County Civic Center. It included everyone from FSU's own Flying High Circus to President T.K. 
Wetherell, yet the most exciting guests were comedians Dave Attell and Carlos Mencia who put 
on a humorous, "politically incorrect" which made everyone think and maybe a little uneasy. 

Saturday brought a close to the 2005 Homecoming week with the anticipated 
football game that had everyone in the stands on their feet, In the close face-off be- 
tween FSU and the Maryland Terps, the Seminoles triumphed with a 35-27 win, 

Homecoming is more than fun and games, It's about pride, character and bleeding 
the garnet and gold as alumni come back to their alma mater to awaken the Seminole 
spirit inside once again,

aptly named Renegade. 82,300 fans watch in silence as Osceola plants a flaming 
spear at midfield. 

While working on the Homecoming Committee in 1962, Bill Durham, a 1965 
graduate of FSU first envisioned the idea of Chief Osceola and Renegade. He did not 
receive any support for the idea until Bobby Bowden arrived in 1976 as the head foot- 
ball coach. In the fall of 1977, Durham's persistence paid off. 

Durham sought and obtained the approval from the Seminole Tribe of Florida for 
the portrayal of Osceola. Finally, in 1978, during the opening game against Oklahoma 
State, the legend of Osceola and Renegade began. 

Osceola dresses in authentic regalia designed by the Seminole tribe women, 
Today, Durham and his family supply the beautiful Appaloosa horses know as the Ren- 
egade. Together they have opened every home game with the traditional planting of 
the spear, appeared in many major bowl games and performed on national television 
on numerous occasions, The Renegade Team volunteers, caretakers of Renegade, 
aid in bringing this spectacular tradition to those who love Florida State University. 

Together, Osceola and Renegade have been called "the twelfth player on the 
team." They are the most popular pre-game ritual of any team in the nation, and al- 
low the legend of the Seminoles to live on.

The FSU Flying High Circus has been "captivating audiences the world over," since 1947. 
Being a part of one of the few collegiate circuses in the nation, FSU students are a part of some- 
thing they feel important to be a part of and something they love doing. 

Created by former FSU professor, Mr. Jack Haskins, the Florida State University Flying High 
Circus is an extraordinary aspect of Florida State, and is one of few collegiate circuses in the 
country. Rising from "circus activity" to "circus professionalism" the flying high circus allows men 
and women to participate in a challenging, unique, and fun organization. Many performers 
have had no previous circus experience; however, a few have taken an introductory class to 
learn the basics and the rest of various acts are taught in the close community of circus mem- 
bers, a coach and volunteer student assistants. The organization receives no funding from the 
university, as a self-supporting activity, the circus relies on contributions, performances, and 
ticket sales to fund its program. The acts in the circus are extreme and elaborate; some tricks 
performed are more difficult than seen in many professional circuses, thus many students get 
professional circus offers upon graduation. The Flying High Circus features an assortment of per- 
formances, such as the Balancing Ladder, Spanish Web, Teeterboard, Skypole and the Double 
Trapeze, but there is no animal acts performed. 

The FSU Flying High Circus travels internationally and has visited places such as the West 
Indies, the Bahamas and Canada. Featured on V CBS Sports Spectacular,' v ABC's Wide World 
of Sports,' And ESPN, the circus was selected as one of the Southeast Tourism Society's Top

munity members find the circus tent opposite Dick Howser Stadium and year-round, dedicated 
students can be found perfecting their unique skills. Florida State University's Flying High Circus is

Since 1920, the Florida State Reservation, or "The Rez" has been a local "hotspot" for all Tallahas- 
seans to enjoy some fun in the sun. The Florida State University Reservation is located just four miles south 
of the FSU campus on Lake Bradford. The Rez has deep roots in FSU history. It was originally called Camp 
Flastacowo, named after the Florida State College for Women, the college which eventually became 
Florida State University. Located on Lake Bradford, it spans across 73 acres and is a perfect place for 
anyone who enjoys the outdoors - from picnics to canoeing to simply watching the sun go down. 

On the 73-acre property, there are many activities for students to enjoy, such as picnicking, ca- 
noeing, kayaking, beach volleyball, and swimming. Operated by fellow FSU students and lifeguards, a 
great thing about spending the day at The Rez is that it can cost little to nothing. Admission is free for all 
FSU students, and renting a canoe, kayak or sailboat is only $3 an hour, with the first hour free. The kayak, 
canoe, and sailboat rental at The Rez is open to all experience levels. There are two-person canoes and 
one-person kayaks available for students, and The Rez provides the paddles and requires the lifejackets. 
For up to $35, students can also challenge themselves on the extensive ropes course. Open Tuesday thru 
Sunday, The Rez comes set with covered picnic tables (great for cookouts), and if the midday sun gets 
too hot, Lake Bradford is just a jump away. 

There are always events happening at The Rez, which are great opportunities for students to 
meet new people, spot familiar faces and hang out with old friends. The annual Rez Fest and Rez Daze 
are annual Tallahassee traditions that feature live bands, free food and all sorts of activities from beach 
volleyball to wall-climbing. 

The Florida State Reservation is a haven for Tallahassee recreation, and home to several outdoor 
groups, such as the Wakeboarding Club and the Outdoor Pursuits Program that provides students the op- 
portunity to take camping and hiking trips outside of town. 

Jenny Julien 

On a beautiful summer day, FSU students out at The Rez are lounging in the sun, playing beach 
volleyball with friends, or exploring Lake Bradford in a canoe or kayak. FSU senior Krystal Plomatos said, 
"Almost everyone I know, including myself, is from the beach, and The Rez is the closest thing we can 
get to what we're used to at home: being out on the water and in the sun. Plus, I don't know anywhere 
else I can go kayaking for free." Whether it's relaxation or exercise you're looking for, The Florida State 
University Reservation has it all. Whoever dares to brave Tallahassee's Summer and Spring heat, loves be- 
ing active or just wants to lay out in the sun, The Rez has been and will continue to be a place for all FSU 

students to truly enjoy.

Every fall, thousands of young athletes enroll at FSU, but only a few hundred are able to 
participate in NCAA sanctioned sports. For the motivated few that can't quit their favorite sport, 
the FSU intramural program provides an electrifying atmosphere for them to expel their competi- 
tive energy. 

Intramural players at FSU are as competitive, serious, and intense as any athlete. The fierce- 
ness of a true competitor can be found in the eyes of a participant of blitzing flag football, en- 




t ror 

gaging miniature golf, or cutthroat kickball. For some, playing intramurals gives them a chance to 
socialize with their sororities, church groups or friends. Others use intramurals as a way to stay in 
shape, and still others are out to win. 

At the start of each new season, captains are selected as well as team colors and names. 
Everyone can find a sport with the intramural program which represents over 50 sports each year. 
The campus recreation board sets no practice requirements, teams can practice as little or as of- 
ten as they like. Currently, teams can practice at the intramural facility that is located across the 
street from the stadium, but in the near future a new Intramural Sports Complex will be available. 

The new complex, which will be located near the Seminole Golf Course, will be eight times 
larger than the current one and span 104 acres. The new complex will have 45 acres of field 
space, but it will also include beach volleyball courts, basketball courts and a street hockey court. 
This year intramural teams broke records by having 248 flag football teams, 170 kickball squads, 
204 soccer teams and 216 softball teams. Even these huge numbers of teams could not accom- 
modate the growing demand for intramural teams as over 40 teams in each sport remained on 
the waiting list. Intramural teams can often be found practicing and playing long into the night, 
since this is the only time all of the team can get together. 

Intramurals also offer students numerous job opportunities such as a sports official, site su- 
pervisor or sign-in attendant. Intramurals can be for someone just looking for a good time, or can 
be the therapy for that nagging competitive spirit that can't be satisfied. 

Kristin Mestre 

Intramurals are for any student 
who takes the initiative to sign 
up a team and play, mostly 
greek organizations, resident 
halls, and groups of friends.

The sports teams such as 
basketball which is played 
n the Leach Center, help 
unite members. 

Umpiring a co-rec game, the field 
official concentrates on the next

students to play sports, and creates

County Humane Society, The Boys and Girls Club of the Big Bend, Covenant Hospice, 
the Hunger Hotline, Habitat for Humanity and The Red Cross. These organizations are in 
constant need of support and dedicated volunteers. 

Many service oriented organizations at FSU that focus on a specific project or a 
variety of projects as well as participating in activities such as the homecoming parade. 
Some of these organizations are Alpha Phi Omega, CHICS, Circle K International and Al- 
ternative Break Corps. Community service can be co-curricular or extra-curricular. Class- 
es are offered each semester that incorporate community service into their curriculum. 
Florida State also recognizes the importance of service by implementing the ServScript 
program. Through the ServScript program, any student who completes 20 hours of com-

munity service through an approved program can have those 20 hours recorded on 
their official transcript. 

Every volunteer has a different answer for that question. Some are drawn to a 
specific cause relating to their own experiences. Others serve to build their resume or 
learn new skills. Still others volunteer to simply meet new people. No matter what leads 
a volunteer to serve, they all leave with a better understanding of themselves and their

The city of Tallahassee may be located in Florida but it is a far cry from the bustling ur- 
ban streets of Tampa or the soaring buildings that line the Miami skyline. Tallahassee is made 
up mainly of rolling hills, a quality unusual among other major cities in Florida. The climate in 
Tallahassee is quite mild and moist. While most of Florida has a subtropical climate year-round, 
Tallahassee, along with most of the panhandle area, has a four-season climate. 

Located just inside the state line, Tallahassee is home to the state's capital as well as 
many other unique landmarks. The original Capitol building, with its trademark candy cane 
striped awnings, proudly stands as a reminder of the rich history of Tallahassee. Behind it, tow- 
ering above ancient oak trees stands the new Capitol building, which offers a view of the en- 
tire city from its 22nd floor observatory. 

Tallahassee is rich with school pride as it is home to the Eagles, Rattlers, and Seminoles. 
These schools combine to make Tallahassee a college town where old and young alike gather 
together in support of their schools and their town. Despite its warm weather location, Talla- 
hassee is said to be home to the first Christmas celebrated in the United States. The celebration 
occurred at the camp of Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto in 1539. 

America's largest concentration of plantations lie between Tallahassee and Thomas- 
ville, Georgia, where visitors and residents are able to travel back to their roots through tours 
of manors, plantations, galleries and museums. Tallahassee is also the home to 122 properties 
on the National Register of Historic Places. One of these places is Bradley's General Store lo- 


J f*\ I f r\ /J I Brianna Douthitt 


cated on Moccasin Gap Road. The Bradley's have run the family store since it was opened in 
1927. Visitors can stop by for a Moon pie or one of their world famous sausages. Other places 
that shouldn't be missed on any trip to Tallahassee include Apalachicola National Forest, the 
Challenger Center, the Governor's Mansion and the Maclay State Gardens. With all the many 
places to visit, junior Sara Cameron likes Klemans Plaza the best because "It's just so pretty and 
quaint and they decorate it so nicely for the festivals and such throughout the year." 

Tallahassee is so much more than just a capitol city, it may not be known for white sand 
beaches or high-end fashion, but it is a picturesque town with so much to offer.

Having a strong rushing game was a prominent way to improve the 
team's record. In the dominate photo, junior Lorenzo Booker dodges 
a tackle from a Maryland Terp during the Homecoming game, to gain 
more yardage. 

CNo longer does Miami have bragging rights, the wide 
/ide left curse has been overcome with the season 
opener against Miami. Being one of the teams to have the 
youngest set of starters in college football, the win over Miami 
gave the Seminoles confidence to welcome Boston College 
to the ACC. Even though the Seminole were fourteen point 
underdogs, critics were silenced when FSU upset the Virginia 
Tech Hokies 27-22 in the ACC championship, Coach Bobby 
Bowden quotes, "We haven't been that heavy of an under- 
dog in years, But any ways, we came back, That gum defense 
just played great. I didn't think we could stop the run like we 

Voted the games MVP, Willie Reid ran an 83-yard, punt 
return and had a total of 177 yards. "I don't think the punt re- 
turn had anything to do with the team thinking we were able 
to win the game," said Reid. 

"They did a great job with us having that trust in our- 
selves and that confidence to make us feel like we were go- 
ing to win the game." After winning their 12th conference 
ACC title, the Seminoles went to their first BCS bowl game 
since 2003 to face the legendary coach Joe Paterno's Penn 
State Nittany Lions, in the FedEx Orange Bowl. 

The Florida State Seminoles entered the game ranked 
22nd in the nation and Penn State ranked 3rd. The Noles were 
big underdogs but they were determined to play with a big 
heart. Going down early in the first quarter 7-0 the Noles looked 
for inspiration to get back into the game after many three 
and outs. Just like he did in the ACC Championship game, Wil- 
lie Reid ignited the team with an 87-yard punt return with just 
a little over 4 minutes left in the half. After a back and forth 
second half the game went into overtime tied 16-16, where 
Penn State overcame with a late field goal to win the game 
in triple overtime 26-23, Willie Reid received the Orange Bowl 
MVP with 180 return yards and 235 all-purpose yards despite 
the Noles losing. Although young and inexperienced the team 
overcame many difficult challenges this season, which has the 
Noles entering next fall as contenders for the national title.

From sweater sets and cartwheels to short skirts 
and backhand-springs, cheerleaders have made a one 
hundred and eighty degree turn around in the past fifty 

The Florida State University cheerleading program 
consists of two teams, the Garnet, a co-ed team, and 
Gold, the all-girl team. Both teams are regarded as Var- 
sity teams, thus the time commitment and enthusiasm for 
the Seminoles is imperative. A week in the life of a Gar- 
net and Gold cheerleader demonstrates the dedication 
these talented FSU students have for their teams. 

"We have a really crazy schedule and cheerlead- 
ing keeps me very busy but it is all worth it when you get 
to cheer for a team as great as the Seminoles," said Mal- 
lory Davis. 

With impressive stunts and outstanding choreog- 
raphy, the cheerleaders keep the Seminole fans hyped 
up throughout the long sport games, The Garnet and 
Gold cheerleaders have proven to be essential at ath- 
letic events and spreading school spirit around Florida 
State campus on game days, The teams attend men's 
and women's basketball games, home and away foot- 
ball games, women's volleyball, and post-season travel 
for bowls and tournaments. Both teams contribute to 
numerous hours of community service and public ap- 
pearances around Florida State University's campus, as 
well as around the state. 

Between tumbling, classes, stunting sessions/and 
hitting the gym in addition to cheerleading at pep ral- 
lies and sporting events, these students have earned the 
right to be called athletes. Tiffany An. 



With the use of props, stunts, and choreography, the Garnet and Gold 
cheerleading squads keep the stadium roaring throughout sporting 
events. The FSU Cheerleaders show that keeping a spirited demeanor 
is crucial to keep the crowed pumped up.

Junior Steve Roof earn Honorable Mention Ail-American honors as he 
placed 15th in the 1650 free with a new school record of 15:04.42. 
This is the second time in Roof's career that he has earned Honorable 
Mention All-American honors, his first being in 2005 when he took part 
of the Seminoles' 800 free relay that finished 16th. 

With each passing season, the Florida State Uni- 
versity men's swimming and diving program gets a tittle 
bit stronger and a little bit closer to being the best pro- 
gram in the Atlantic Coast Conference. This 2005-2006 
school year brought success for FSU's Men's Swimming 
and Diving team. 

Florida State athletes are a regular sight on top of 
the medal stand at the ACC Championships. The men's 
swimming and diving team amassed eighteen individual 
and relay titles/ the second best six-year run in school his- 

Seminole swimmers and divers excel in the class- 
room just as well as they do in the pool. Since 2000, the 
Seminoles have had at least 20 student-athletes on the 
ACC Honor Roll every year, including a program-high 32 
in 2002. 

This year the Atlantic Coast Conference named 
its post season award winners where head coach Neil 
Harper won ACC Women's Swimming and Diving Coach 
of the Year, Neil Harper, seven-year head coach, has 
orchestrated a winning strategy since his arrival to Florida 
State University, 

"This is the biggest compliment that the other 
coaches in the conference can give someone, It will be 
there to remind me of the great year that we had as a 
team and a staff. When I look at the award it is some- 
thing that we, the team, the entire coaching staff and 
the whole department share together. You can't ac- 
complish something like that by yourself, It takes a big 
staff, a great team and everyone pulling and pushing 
together to get as far as we have," stated Harper.

over-achieving to win the title 



Florida State University's women's swimming and div- 
ing team made a powerful mark as a program in 2006 on 
the university's history. As a program, it has produced 22 Ail- 
Americans, 42 ACC Champions and 79 AII-ACC performers 
over the last six years. 

Finishing the season with seven team members com- 
peting at the NCAA National Championships was a success 
in itself. Additionally, these competitors broke records as well. 
With seven years under his belt as head coach, Neil Harp- 
er could not have been more proud of the team's perfor- 

The NCAA Championship put the swimming and div- 
ing team's best foot forward. In the very beginning, the Florida 
State women's 400 medley relay earned Honorable Mention 
All-American setting an early standard that their presence 
would be felt. In the process, four members of the team won 
the consolation final and set a new Atlantic Coast Confer- 
ence and school record of 3:39.01 . End Day One. 

The Florida State women's swimming and diving team 
continued to be a force at the NCAA National Champion- 
ship. Day Two brought them All-American honors as they took 
third in the championship final. 

The last day came as no surprise when they followed 
through with just as much effort, finishing 16th with 84 points. 
Earning multiple All-American and Honorable Mention Ail- 
American honors over the course of nationals the Seminoles 
finished a remarkable season with a success at Nationals. 
With countless hours of practice, team effort and an incred- 
ible coach, these ladies proved their abilities in and out of the 
water, progressing both athletically as well as academically. 

Shannon Giynn ' 

At the NCAA National Championships, the Seminoles placed 16th with 
84 points. FSU made history when they won their first ever ACC title 
with 596.5 points and had nine event champions. The Seminoles set 
new school records, two conference records and one ACC meet re- 
cord this season.

Hydration after a long 8k run is crucial in order to stay healthy for 
the entirety of the season. In the dominate photo, senior Sean Burris 
stays refreshed after finishing 10th at the ACC Championship. 

ie nationally ranked Men's cross country teamed 
wrapped up a triumphant season, they finished in the 
top twenty of the NCAA National Championship. Pro- 
gressively improving every year, this was the teams' third 
consecutive appearance in the NCAA Championship. 

"This season was very rewarding. We achieved 
our main goal of being a Top 20 team at NCAAs," said 
red shirt sophomore Chris Nickinson. 

Finishing first at every meet for Florida State, senior 
Andrew Lemoncello led the team to success. "Every 
race was a major improvement. I was really struggling 
with training at the beginning of the season, but I kept 
working on improving. I set two school records: two ACC 
performer of the week awards and an Ail-American per- 
formance," said Andrew Lemoncello who not only broke 
his own personal records this year, but also Cross Coun- 
try records for Florida State University. 

"It was a big deal when Andrew made All-Ameri- 
can who has represented the men's team," said Head 
Coach Bob Braman, Andrew, along with the rest of the 
men's cross country, trained daily to build up stamina to 
make it to the championships. 

Finishing number one at the NCAA National Cham- 
pionship was the teams' ultimate goal. "Some of the best 
memories are not made by winning a race or winning a 
match, It is the journey or road that you and your fellow 
teammates took to get there," said senior Sean Burris.

The women's cross country had an admirable sea- 
son including two first-place finishes and placing seventh 
in the ACC Championship, They also found themselves I 
with something that can not be placed in a trophy case, 
a sisterhood that ended up being the key to the team's 
successful season. 

"i loved being in the huddles before every race. 
You can taste the passion we have for the sport, see the 
intensity in my teammates' eyes, and feel the unity we 
have together. The last few moments before we scream 
v Go Noles' are the most powerful because we all look 
at each other. There in that moment, the true sisterhood 
we have for one another comes alive within our gazes," 
said sophomore Shannon Coates. 

Having such a close-knit team made the fresh- 
men's transition from high school cross country to the 
collegiate level much smoother. The upperclassmen 
gave the incoming freshman the benefits of their ex- 
perience at the NCAA level. Freshman Lydia Willemse 
stated, "cross country this year, as a freshman, was so 
much more than I expected. I had a great season, and 
learned so much. Our team really improved throughout 
the year. I am so excited for the next cross country sea- 

Even though: the team just missed out on their 
chance to make an appearance in the NCAA National ; 
Championship, they feel confident about next year's 
season. With only' one graduating: senior, this young 
team will use their experience to run their way into a 
national championshif 

Staying determined and focused through out the course is the key to 
making great time and getting points for the team. In the dominate 
photo; Jessica Crate gives the course her undivided attention to finish 
the race with a time of 21:06.5, in which the team placed 7th.

Staying focus and playing as a team were the fundamentals in mak- 
ing a successful season. In the dominate photo, junior Sarah Griffin 
spikes the ball to aide her team in the 3-0 victory over Mercer. 

The Florida State volleyball team was able to do 
something Wednesday night September 19th, that it 
was unable to do in it's previous four outings: earn a 
much deserved victory. 

Snapping a four-match losing streak with a 3-1 
win over the University of South Florida on Lucy Mc- 
Daniel Court at Tully Gym in front of roughly 700 fans 
didn't come easy, however, as all four games for the 
Tribe were close. After dropping the first game to the 
Bulls 23-30 — a contest that saw USF out-hit the 'Noles 
in percentage .206 to .128 — the Garnet and Gold 
fought back in the second game behind the piay of ju- 
nior setter Jessica Skower and sophomore Libero Sum- 
mer Weissing. Both players registered five kills and six 
digs apiece in the contest. While the Weissing-Skower 
tandem guided the Seminoles to the 30-22 victory in 
the second game, Senior outside hitter Kristen Rust led 
both the offense and defense in the third contest with 
five kills and a game-high seven digs for the 30-25 win, 
For the fourth and final game, Freshman outside hitter 
Marrita Royster-Crockett paved the way for the x Noles 
hitting at a .400 mark with six kills on ten attempts. The 
impressive play helped FSU slip past the Bulls with a final 
score of 30-28. 

For the match, Skower finished with fifty-one set 
assists, one ace, twelve digs, three blocks and twelve 
kills while Royster-Crockett had a team-high fifteen 
kills. Skower and Rust notched their second respective 
double-doubles of the season. Weissing had seventeen 
digs to push her total double-digit dig count to six of 

Seven matches this Season. Brandon Mellor of the FSView

going beyond the goal to rise to the top 

"Ail season long this group has done a heck of a 
job. it is nice that the NCAA rewarded us with a number 
2 seed," said first year FSU Head Coach, Mark Krikorian. 
The loss of six seniors, the transfer of two essential play- 
ers, and the parting of the teams most successful head 
coach last year left many people skeptical if the 2005 
year was going to be a rebuilding year. Despite crit- 
ics predictions about the outcome of their season, they 
became one of the top four teams in the nation. The 
Seminole soccer team accomplished a record breaking 
season, which is sure to go down In history. For the sec- 
ond time in three years, the Seminole team has seen it's 
hopes of playing for a National Championship slip away 
with the loss of one game. 

Although they fell just short of a National Champi- 
onship, loosing to fourth ranked UCLA in the quarterfinals, 
their twenty win, four lost, and one tie (20-1-4) season 
gave the Seminoles something of which to be proud. 

"There are no expressions to describe how it feels 
to be a part of this. I had to watch from the sidelines the 
last time we made it to the College Cup. To be able to 
be a part of this on the field this year is a dream come 
true for me and this team," said Ali Mims. With the loss 
of two seniors and a promising freshman class, the Lady 
Seminoles expect to continue with their success and 
add a National championship towards another impres- 
sive season, 

Getting the upper hand on your competitor on the field was key in 
order to retain ball control. In the dominate photo, junior Viola Odebre 
displays her athletic ability while performing a bicycle kick to keep the 
ball in bounds and under her direction.

his feet. Alexander Johnson led the Seminoles with 14 points to beat 
Georgia Tech 80-79 , including a slam dunk that tied the ragged con- 
test at 77 with 2:06 left. 

After a rough start last season, the Seminoles came into the 
2006 season with high expectations and a determination to play 
well, Threshing out 10 wins of the first 11 games, the predominantly 
younger Seminole team's leadership came from experienced senior 
veterans Andrew Wilson, Diego Romero, and Todd Galloway. 

The Seminoles produced one of the best featured offenses in 
the Atlantic Coast Conference, scoring an average of 80,5 points per 
game and 224 more points then their opponents while averaging 10 
steals through 20 games, 

A rocky schedule left the Seminole Men tackling some of the 
Atlantic Coast Conference's heavyweights. With their backs against 
the wall and desperate to stay alive in the NCAA Tournament hunt, 
the Noles banded together to beat rival Virginia at home. 

The match-up game versus Virginia was highlighted by An- 
drew Wilson with a career high 21 points and Alexander Johnson who 
scored 15 points and was the games' top rebounder with 13, adding 
to his fifth double-double in seven games. Coach Leonard Hamilton 
commented of his team, "During one of our recent team meetings 
one of our players stepped up and said that we really need to play 
the remaining of the year for our seniors and to try and send them off 
on a positive note'' 

The struggle to stay alive for an NCAA Tournament bid came 
in the most unlikely of times, Florida State in the last minutes against 
Nod Duke finished off the Blue Devils 79-74 in a huge upset that caused 
the students to storm the court twice, "I couldn't have written it any 
better. This is unbelievable;' said Senior Andrew Wilson "I got to do it 
in front of my whole family my mom bought thirty tickets for a whole 
bunch of family members to come in that don't get to see me play. I 
have been here so long and it is such a relief to be able to go out on 

The Florida State team ended up getting snubbed by the se- 
lection committee and did not get into the Big Dance. "I must say 
that to say that we were disappointed, I guess would probably be an 
understatement;' said Coach Hamilton "We did realize that we basi- 
cally controlled our destiny and we thought we did a good enough 
job to considered a top 64 team, but when you really don't have a 
total knowledge of what all the criteria is that the committee is us- 
ing, I guess you are really somewhat in the dark, The men's basketball 
team got invited into the National Invitation Tournament with a No. 2 
seed and plan to take this as a great step towards the future,

defeating the battles to make it to the dance 



The Florida State Women's Basketball team came 
out strong in the 2004-05 season and decided to repeat 
their success again in 2005-2006. Lead by their Head 
Coach Sue Semrau, the Lady Noles head into the sea- 
son with high hopes and making it to the Big Dance. The 
season would turn out to be everything they hoped for 
going 19-9 overall and 10-4 in the Atlantic Coast Confer- 
ence; the Lady Noles secured a bid to the NCAA Tourna- 
ment for the 5th time in school history with victories over 
rivals Florida, Miami and nationally ranked teams Boston 
College and North Carolina State, The team got even 
better news when they team heard of their No. 6 seed- 
ing which matches last years and is the highest seeding 
the Tribe has had in the 64 team format. 

Seniors Ganiyat Adeduntan, Holly Johnson, Han- 
nah Linquist, and LaQuinta Neely should feel especially 
proud knowing they were part of the first class to lead 
Florida State to seven or more Atlantic Coast Confer- 
ence wins in four consecutive seasons including a record 
10 wins in the conference this season. "I am really proud 
of our players because there has been a lot of hard work 
on their part," Coach Sue Semrau said, 

This year's team helped Florida State achieve 
three top four finishes in the Atlantic Coast Conference, 
a fourth straight post-season appearance and second 
straight trip to the NCAA Tournament for the first time 
since the 1990-91 season.

"Here are your Florida State Golden Girls." Performing during half time 
at the Georgia Tech game, the Golden Girls are a relief of the intense 
game by dancing to their Pitbull "Shake" routine, 

Intricate flowing movements designed to show the team's 
talents while entertaining the fans and beating the competition. 
These movements are the result of weeks that involve at least ten 
hours of practice on top of working out and finding time for class, It 
is this sort of dedication that makes the Florida State Golden Girls so 

The Golden Girls are FSU's dance team which performs at ail 
the Men's Basketball home games, The eighteen girl team spends 
hours practicing on the routines you see during time-outs and half- 
time of every games, 

"We generally choreograph twenty to thirty routines each 
season and we also have two routines that we focus on for National 
Competition." says senior Kyia Provitt who has spent three years with ..'; 
the Golden Girls, including the last two as team captain. 

In national competition at the Universal Dance Association 
National Dance Championships the Golden Girls placed seventh in 
the Hip-Hop category and fifth in Jazz. The competition was featured 
on ESPN. 

The Golden Girls do more than just perform at basketball 
games, they also make appearances at events on campus such as 
Cheers for Charity, Pow-Wow, Dance Marathon, and the FSU Cir- 
cus. The team also makes various appearances in the community 
at places like Legends Fitness Club, Golden Eagle Country Clubhand 
the Festival of Lights Christmas Parade, The team will also be joining 
the Men's Basketball team at the ACC Tournament in Greensboro, 
North Carolina. 

The summer brings little rest for the Golden Girls as they at- 
tend a Dance Team Camp at the University of Alabama. The camps 
main goal is to acquire new routines and skills for the upcoming sea- 
son as well as bond with teammates. The camp features a team 
competition in which this years team placed second. 

With all the extra time and effort why would anyone want 
to be a member of the Golden Girls? Provitt best answers that ques- 
tion by saying "I decided to join the Golden Girls because I love to 
perform. Getting to showcase the art that I have such a passion for 
is thrilling. I am also a huge basketball fan and being on Golden Girls 
is a perfect mix of the two." Jared Shuman

seizing the moment to envision a hole-in-one 

9 9 | 


With the nation's 16th toughest schedule, the Men's Goif 
Team set out to prove that they are building one of the top 
programs in the country. But with every season's end comes 
the time to say goodbye to the seniors who contributed so 
much to the team. 

Adam Wallace, a high school state champion and three- 
time varsity letterman, brought the most collegiate experience 
to the team. After competing in 14 events comprising of nearly 
40 rounds over a three-year career there is no doubt that he 
will be missed. 

Another senior moving on is Gonzalo "Gonzo" Ibarraran. 
Gonzo, from Saltillo-Coahuila, Mexico; won two Junior Nation- 
al Championships in Mexico before moving to Florida to per- 
fect his game. In fact Gonzo represented Mexico in the Junior 
World Championships and placed sixth. Like Wallace, Gonzo 
was a three-time varsity letterman as well. Majoring in social 
science, Gonzalo plans on becoming a professional golfer in 
the future. 

The last senior leaving the team is Jacob Davis, a Varsity 
letterman and Brevard Community College transfer student, 
won the all out individual junior college national championship 
before moving on to Florida State. During his division I career 
he competed in five tournaments, completing 14 rounds and 
averaging 77 strokes per round. 

There is no denying that the loss of Adam Wallace, Gon- 
zalo Ibarraran and Jacob Davis will leave a void in the team 
that must be filled, however the amazing play by junior Torstein 
Nevestad, sophomores Jonas Blixt, Tommy Rymer and Song 
Jeon and the play of freshmen stand-out Matt Savage, will 
leave head-coach Trey Jones feeling very comfortable about 
next year. "Our task as a team is to continue to work hard and 
show improvements... we showed that we have the ability to 
become a good team — now we have to become a good 

Freshman Nicholas Smith led the Seminoles' at the General Jim Hack- 
ler Invitational place third at the TPC of Myrtle Beach. Smith is tied for 
fifth place in individual standings after carding a pair of one-under par 
scores of 71 .

Whitney Brummett accomplished her second consecutive top-15 
finish as she carded a 76 in the final round of the ACC Championship 
for a total of 231 and tied with teammate Jaclyn Burch by placing 
15th in the individual standings. 

Whitney Brummett, Caroline Larsson, and Jaclyn Burch — three Florida 
State golfers who helped the Seminoles to a 16th place finish at the NCAA 
Championship — have been named to the national All-American Scholar 
Team by the National Golf Coaches Association. It marks the fourth time Lars- 
son has been named to the prestigious team, the second time Brummett has 
been named and the first time Burch has been so honored. 

The National Golf Coaches Association represents women's colle- 
giate golf coaches and was formed to encourage the playing of golf by 
women while promoting education. The organization represents more than 
400 coaches nationally and is dedicated to promoting and recognizing stu- 
dent-athletes throughout the United States. The criteria for selection to the 
All-America Scholar Athlete team is stringent with a minimum 3.50 grade point 
average and regular competition in two-thirds of the school's regularly sched- 
uled competitive rounds during the academic year a must. 

Larsson has earned a 3.94 grade point average over her four year 
academic career with a major in psychology and a minor in communication. 
She has continuously demonstrated leadership in the classroom earning rec- 
ognition on the Dean's List and President's List, as well as on the ACC Top 6 
for community service all four years, Larsson also excelled on the course dur- 
ing her career as she served as the Seminoles' team captain as a junior and 
senior. In addition, she earned AII-ACC honors in 2004 and led Florida State to 
four tournament championships and played in three NCAA championships in 
her career. Brummett, a sophomore majoring in political science and minor- 
ing in business, holds a 3.86 grade point average. Brummett helped lead the 
Seminoles to the team title at the Ryder/Florida Collegiate Championship in 
2006 and has helped Florida State to two team titles in her first two collegiate 
seasons. In the classroom, she has earned Dean's List honors three times and 
has made the ACC Honor Roll, as well as the ACC Top 6 Community Service 
in 2005 and 2006. 

Burch, a junior at Florida State, holds a 3.58 grade point average in 
sport management. Burch was named to the AII-ACC team in 2005 and was a 
team captain in 2006, She has helped Florida State to three team champion- 
ships and the NCAA championships twice. She has earned Dean's List honors 
three times and is the third scholar athlete to make ACC Top 6 for community 
service team awards in 2003, 2004, and 2005. 

Florida State finished in 16th in the team standings at the NCAA Divi- 
sion I Women's Golf Championship to end the season ranked in the nation's 
top 16 for the first time since 1999 and only the third time in school history. The 
Seminoles, who entered the championship ranked No. 24 nationally, finished 
the event at the Scarlet Course at The Ohio State University ahead of No. 12 
Texas A&M, No. 13 UNLV, No. 19 Kent State and No. 21 Arizona.

The Seminole's Men's Tennis team ends the 


The Seminole's Men's Tennis team ends the season strong with an 18-12 
record, the second-best recording the last 11 years for the program, 

It was a nail biter until the last moment at the second round of the NCAA 
tournament against Ole Miss. Unfortunately for the Seminoles, it was Florida State 
that came up on the short end. 

The Men's team along with a good record gained recognition with junior 
Ytai Abougzir was named the ACC "Performer of the Week" on March 20th and 
with senior Chris Westerhof becoming, FSU's all-time double's leader after earning 80 
career doubles victories, 

Junior Ytai Abougzir logged the biggest accomplishment of his career as 
he became the first Seminole in 12 years to be. selected to participate in the singles 
and doubles competition of the 2006 NCAA Division. I Men's Tennis Championships, 

Abougzir is ranked No, 36. nationally in singles and he and classmate Chris 
Westerhof make up the No, 11-ranked duo in the nation. The dynamic pair had 
an. impressive 20-8 record this season, with a Win over the top-team in the nation,: 
Abougzir is, the first FSU player to qualify for both the singles and doubles Champion- 
ships. .,:'.;' 

One of the program's ail-time great players, Chris Westerhof; took his final 
team bow as a : Seminole and went out in, style. Recording, the Seminoles' first point : 
of the day at the NCAA tournament with a .6-3, 6-1 win at No. 5 singles over Robbye 
Poole; Westerhof's 68 career, singles wins puts : him at No, 10 on :the: : all-time singles 
list. With 162 total career wins (singles and doubles, victories combined); Westerhof 
is ranked second, ■' 

'■■".,. "Chris winsevery big match," HultqUist said, "and if you look ,at : his NCAA , 
record during the last four years : it is outstanding. He had: a great career at FSU- and 
I think it's fair to say.we : can always -count on him gnd.Maciek (Sykut) : during big 
matches;"' ., 

The team also gave back to the community this past year with .hosting 
"Children in Action Sport and 1 Exercise. Health Day" on March. 28th where children 
could learn about healthy activities such as bowlirig and martial arts from providers 
of such from around the community, in; between, breaks the players and 
children would handout prizes donated to the cause by community organizations. 

Recording a new Seminole tradition, the : Men's .tennis team along with 
staff; administrators and fans gathered at the "Unconquered" statue for the lighting , 
of the spear to, mark the end of :the : 2005-2006 season -for the team. 

FSU adopted a 'policy that allows, flames to lap more frequently from the, : 
: spear of the "unconquered" statue recognizing events of great significance and 
accomplishment on'f he FSU campus. .". 

"I think thecoaehes and players take, a lot of pride in the Seminole spirit," 
Hultquist commented. "Lighting the torch tonight and having a was 
really speciai and something: we are fodking forward to each year, -We have the' 
best fans in the nation and. tt was really special for pur team and program to receive 
that amount of support."

Nicola Slater junior 

Senior Alina Mihailescu and her double partner, Tapiwa Marobela had 
their first ranked wins first the first time in their respective careers versus 
No. 14 Georgia Tech. 

Despite having difficult losses and a strain of injuries, the Lady Seminole 
tennis squad managed to finish off their season strong finishing 65th with 2-9 in the 
ACC and 9-13 overall. 

Suzanna Mansour and Nicola Slater were both able to finish off the sea- 
son with each of them having a 9-4 record. The last game of the regular season 
against Duke saw freshman Lisa Nystrom Skold defeat Jessie Robinson 7-5 and 6- 
3, which in turn led to the only point that the Seminoles picked up. That day was 
also proclaimed "Alina Mihailescu Day" in honor of the only senior on the team 
who contributed much to her teammates during her four years at Florida State. 

The No. 10-seeded Florida State women's tennis team saw its ACC Title 
hopes come to an end as the Seminoles fell 4-1 to seventh-seeded Wake Forest 
in the opening round of the 2006 ACC Women's Tennis Championship at the Cary 
Tennis Center. 

FSU came out strong and captured the doubles point with victories at 
Nos. 2 and 3 at the ACC Championship. First the freshmen pair of Ania Rynarze- 
wska and Suzanna Mansour overpowered Ashlee Davis and Ana Jerman, 8-3, and 
the Tapiwa Marobela-Alina Mihailescu duo followed suit with a 9-7 win at No. 3. 

"This was our best doubles performances of the year at Nos. 2 and 3," 
FSU head coach Jennifer Hyde said, "It was great for Alina (Mihailescu) to finish 
up her career really strong. This has been the best I have seen her play in doubles 
since I started coaching here." 

"It's been a long season with the injuries and other things we couldn't 
control," Hyde said. "But I cannot say enough about the character and heart of 
this team. Everyone competed hard all season long and I can honestly say we 
had a blast together this season and that shows a lot about their character, When 
we got knocked down, they'd get right back up. I am extremely proud of our 
team and I just adore each and every one of them. As a coach, you couldn't ask 
for more. We have the intangibles intact and next year we'll have the numbers. 
Again, I cannot express and describe what a joy it has been to work with these 
girls this season." 

Hand in hand with being an athlete, a being a top student is also an 
important part of being a Seminole. The women's tennis squad fulfilled this ex- 
pectation with seven of the players on the squad landed on the 2006 ACC Honor 
Roll and five of the student-athletes on the team finished the spring semester with 
a GPA above 3.5. With the combined GPA of 3,467 for the academic year and 
a 3.507 average for the 2006 spring semester the FSU women's tennis team re- 
corded the highest team GPA of the 2005-06 academic year. 

"I think it is extremely Important to have student-athletes that excel In 
the classroom, in the community and on the court," second-year FSU head coach 
Jennifer Hyde said. "I am very proud of the hard work and dedication our players 
displayed towards academics this year. It is not easy to play a collegiate sport 
and be a student because of the time and travel demands. However, our stu- 
dent-athletes made a valiant effort to succeed in all perimeters of their lives and 
I couldn't be more pleased." Jonathan Brand

rallying the tribe to bring them home

The Women's Softball team is looking at the new sea- 
son as a stepping stone after a great run the season before, 
The team is lead by seniors, Kim Hotter, BillieAnne Gay, Carly 
Brieske, Natasha Jacob, and Carey Galuppi whom help the 
team tackle on opponents in a strong Atlantic Coast Confer- 

The team started with a rocky first half of the season gc 
ing 20-12 overall with a relatively young squad, but the Lad's 
Notes have done some great things along the way. in Fielder, 
Yuruby Aiicart received the first ACC Player of the Week hon- 
ors which is the 75th award for a Florida State player ever and 
the most handed out to any single school after she had raised 
her hitting average by 80 points during the FSU Invitational. The 
best occurred during the Judi Gorman Classic where FSU upset 
No. 10 Arizona State 1-0 in 10 innings. ■ 

"This is a big win for us over a Top 10 team," FSU head 
coach JoAnne Graf said. "This shows our team that we can 
win any game against any team in the country. This will be a 
big confidence booster. We bent, but we didn't break and our 
pitching and defense came through when we needed them." 

The Lady Notes battled through the tough competition 
and surpassed everyone's expectations as they rolled into Re- 
gionais and upset No. 3 Georgia advancing themselves into 
the Super Regionais as the only ACC school and one of only 
two unranked teams to do so. Even though the Noles were on 
a great run the magic ended when Arizona State got payback 
eliminating them 5-1 in the series second game. "I toid the kids 
that I'm really proud of them," FSU head coach Dr. JoAnne 
Graf said. "We went a step farther than we did last year and I 
told them next year we can go that extra step." 

Florida State recorded its 24th season that school had 
reached 40 wins and 16th in the last 1 7 seasons.

the No.1 ranking in the nation by winning 17 in a row and beat- 
ing nationally ranked teams Florida 6-4 and Winthrop 10-0. One of 
the great moments early in the season was legendary head coach 
Mike Martin reaching 1,400 wins in his career as one of only three 
Division I coaches to do so with a ,700 career winning percentage 
or more. 

"This program is about our team," said Martin after the his- 
toric win. "I am just very blessed and proud to be a part of the Flor- 
ida State team. We have a great administration. We have a great 
staff. We have been fortunate to keep everybody around and I am 
just fortunate to be a part of it." 

The Seminoles soon had to face the heart of the Atlantic 
Coast Conference one of the toughest in the nation with nationally 
ranked teams such as North Carolina, Miami, Clemson, and Georgia 
Tech. The Noles' struggled throughout the rest of the season drop- 
ping in the rankings to No, 18 but continued to give it their all. The 
team came together to make a great run in the ACC tournament 
falling just short of the championship game losing 8-7 to North Caro- 
lina State. "This was a great baseball game," said FSU Head Coach 
Mike Martin. "NC State was a very tough team. They did everything 
better than we did tonight, Give them all the credit. I am just proud 
of the way our ball club fought and hung together. Another hit here 
or there, who knows? But that is what makes the game great, 

The Seminoles were not able to host a Regional but soo 
traveled to Athens, Georgia to face the competition but were elimi- 
nated by Goergia in an exciting third game ending Florida State with 
a 44-21 record and a 29th consecutive Regional appeareance.

LaKendra McCollumn earned Performer of the Week honors this sea- 
son. McCollumn, an AII-ACC candidate, got clocked at 58044 and 
ran a season-best mark in the 400m hurdle finals in the Texas Relays. 

The success of the Women's Track and Field team in 2006 has been 
measured by the success of its athletes, the team has been having an extraor- 
dinary year breaking records and making history. 

Florida State senior hurdler, LaKendra McColumn earned her first At- 
lantic Coast Conference Outdoor Performer of the Week award at her home 
meet performance at the FSU Relays on March 22-25th, 2006. She did excep- 
tionally well reaching regional qualifying times in the 100-meter and 400-me- 

"LaKendra had an awesome weekend," said head coach Bob Bra- 
man. "She's doing a great job across the board In all her events. Her 400m hur- 
dles time is particularly outstanding for this early in the season. We're excited 
about her chasing All-American honors." 

The success continued for the squad as they went on to the Atlantic 
Coast Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships at Rector Field house 
on the campus of Virginia Tech University on Saturday, February 25, 2006 where 
the team had their highest finish since the 2003 season and holstered a sixth top 
three finish in fifteen years in the league. 

At the 2006 Clyde Llttlefield Texas Relays in Austin, Texas red shirt se- 
nior and NCAA runner-up Lacy Janson broke the FSU school pole vault record 
by over three feet setting a new standard for FSU athletics after her. At the 
NCAA Championships Janson won the pole vault national championship while 
teammates Natalie Hughes and Alyce Williams earn All-American honors to 
help team to first top 15 finish in 15 years. 

The 2006 NCAA Indoor National Championships was a successful one 
or the women's track team where they finished in a tie for 14th place with 18 
oints. It Is the highest team finish since FSU placed ninth in 1991. Lacy Janson 
on the 2006 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Pole Vault National Champion- 
ship by clearing a height of 13'1 1 .25" (4.25m). Natalie Hughes was third in the . 
1500m run with a lifetime best time of 4:15.72. She earns her fifth All-American 
honor in five seasons and betters the FSU school record that she set in 2003. 
tedshirt junior Alyce Williams placed seventh in the triple jump to round out the 
coring for Florida State. 

To anyone who watches the group together at practice or during 
team outings, you can see the true bond that has formed through the season. 

"We all have the same goal which Is to run to the best of our ability, 
think everybody wants to give It their best so the other person will be proud 
>f them and so we don't let anyone else down." Said Senior captain Evelyne 
Cynthia Niako who is among the fastest women to ever don Garnet and Gold 
ind one of the top sprinters for the Seminoles this decade. 

The Florida State women's track and field team put together a great 
006 season. A large part of their success can be attributed to hard work, ex- 
ellent leadership and national level experience. Robert Pando

A university education, properly 
realized, must be built upon an intellec- 
tually broadening program of study in 
the liberal arts, As critic Mark Van Doren 
has observed, "Liberal education makes 
the person competent not merely to 
know or do, but also, and indeed chiefly, 
to be." The essential curriculum of a col- 
lege education, Van Doren explained, 
teaches students to learn progressively 
the arts of investigation, discovery, criti- 
cism, and communication. The Florida 
State University's liberal studies curricu- 
lum, which is grounded firmly in courses 
offered by the College of Arts and Sci- 
ences, helps to develop these crucial 
intellectual values and critical skills in all 
undergraduate students. Majors in the 
College of Arts and Sciences, further- 
more, enjoy the privileges and benefits 
of developing a richer appreciation of 
the humanities and the sciences an ap- 
preciation that enhances the quality of 
students' lives morally, intellectually, and 

The oldest college at the Univer- 
sity, the College of Arts and Sciences has 
provided generations of undergraduate 
students instruction in the liberal arts dis- 
ciplines that are essential for intellectu- 
al development and personal growth: 
English and mathematics, history, the 
humanities, and the physical, biological, 
and behavioral sciences. At the gradu- 
ate level, too, the contributions of the 
College of Arts and Sciences have been 
integral to the growth of the University.

Dr. Joseph Travis 

Travis has served as interim dean of 
the college since June when Donald Foss 
stepped down to become the chief aca- 
demic officer for the University of Houston 
System. Travis, who previously served as 
the director of the School of Computa- 
tional Science, was the obvious choice 
to lead the university's largest college, A 
Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor, 
Travis has been a member of the faculty 
of the department of biological sciences 
since 1980 and served as chair of the de- 
partment from 1991 to 1997. 

"Dr, Travis is an extraordinary 
teacher, a renowned scholar and a real 
academic leader," Abele said. "We are 
fortunate to have someone with his tal- 
ent and experience to oversee the Col- 
lege of Arts and Sciences." As dean, Trav- 
is said he will guide the Arts and Sciences 
contribution to advancing FSU into the 
ranks of the nation's elite public universi- 
ties. Travis, who specializes in the fields of 
evolution and ecology, was named a fel- 
low of the American Association for the 
Advancement of Science in 1991 . At FSU, 
he was recognized as a Lawton Profes- 
sor, the university's highest faculty honor, 
in 1996. He also has received a University 
Teaching Award and a Developing Schol- 
ar Award. 

Travis earned a bachelor's degree 
in biology from the University of Pennsyl- 
vania in 1975 and a doctorate in zoology 
from Duke University in 1980.

The field of Communication is 
rapidly evolving. Every day, each of 
us is bombarded by more messages 
than we can count. The College of 
Communication provides state of 
the art instruction and the technol- 
ogy necessary to prepare the best 
educated leaders and professionals. 
Industry and business leaders look to 
our degree programs for outstanding, 
well-trained graduates. 

Although the Florida State Col- 
lege and the Florida State College 
for Women offered communication- 
oriented courses, a communication 
major was not offered until 1948. 
In that same year, a department of 
speech was founded. It recognized 
communication's ties to various pro- 
fessions such as broadcasting, adver- 
tising and public relations. Today the 
Department of Communication of- 
fers graduate degree programs and 
undergraduate majors in advertising, 
public relations, media production, 
mass media studies and communica- 
tion studies. 

FSU's programs in audiology 
and speech-language pathology 
were founded in the early 1950's. The 
department's programs soon were 
accredited with the Educational 
Standards and Professional Services 
Boards of the American Speech-Lan- 
guage-Hearing Association. The De- 
partment of Communication Sciences 
and Disorders offers graduate and un- 
dergraduate degrees to prepare stu- 
dents for careers in hospitals, schools, 
rehabilitation centers, nursing care 
facilities, industry, government health 
facilities, and research laboratories.

Criminology is a broad discipline 
that encompasses the scientific study 
of crime, criminals, the law-making 
process, the criminal justice system, 
and the treatment of offenders. The 
College's program is interdisciplinary 
in nature, drawing upon many disci- 
plines and paradigms for theoretical 
and methodological approaches. 
Among these disciplines are sociol- 
ogy, psychology, law, political sci- 
ence, economics, anthropology, ge- 
ography, public administration, urban 
studies, demography, history, philoso- 
phy, and biology. 

The College of Criminology and 
Criminal Justice is a center of excel- 
lence that expands the knowledge 
of the discipline and advances crimi- 
nological research. It provides a sup- 
portive and stimulating environment 
that encourages collaboration and 
scholarship for faculty and students. 

The College's faculty members 
are researchers who have published 
in the top journals in the field and also 
devote time to nurturing an intellec- 
tual curiosity in their students. The 
academic programs rank among the 
best in the nation. And, the gradu- 
ates know how to implement and test 
ideas so that they are leaders in shap- 
ing America's response to crime and 
can truly make a difference in the 

The College is also home to 
The Center for Criminology and Public 
Policy Research. With grants of more 
than $8 million, the Center's primary 
goal is to support data collection and 
research initiatives with application to 
crime and justice policy.

In its brief but impressive history, the 
College of Engineering has become one of 
the premier learning centers of its kind. In 
1982, when it opened its doors to its first 
35 students, the College held its classes in 
borrowed space on both Florida A&M and 
Florida State University campuses. Today, it 
occupies state-of-the-art facilities, serves 
over 2,300 undergraduate and gradu- 
ate students, and its academic offerings 
have increased to include a wide range 
of bachelor's, master's, and doctoral pro- 
grams that span seven disciplines. Under- 
graduate degree programs in chemical, 
civil, computer, electrical, industrial, and 
mechanical engineering are fully accred- 
ited by the Accreditation Board for Engi- 
neering and Technology (ABET). 

Florida A&M University and Florida 
State University bring together a diversity 
of academic programs and expertise that 
has and will continue to be one of its great- 
est strengths. Approximately half of the 
students are African Americans. The col- 
lege provides a highly diverse educational 
environment with all minority populations 
represented. Ninety faculty members from 
23 nations are among the most accom- 
plished scholars in the world. They serve 
as outstanding instructors and role models 
and mentors for the diverse student popu- 
lation. Few schools have met the challenge 
of educating future engineering profes- 
sionals with the expertise and determina- 
tion demonstrated by the FAMU-FSU Col- 
lege of Engineering. 

In a little more than two decades, 
administrators, faculty, and staff have 
transformed this College from tentative 
beginnings into its current status as a wide- 
ly acknowledged and highly respected 
educational institution. The College has 
met increasing educational standards and 
constant advancements in the field with in- 
novative administrative inquiring spirit, and 
hard work.

This year, the College of Human Sci- 
ences celebrated it's centennial, having 
been established in 1905, Considered the 
flagship program in Human Sciences in Flor- 
ida, the college has consistently ranked as 
one of the top fifteen national programs in 
terms of grants and contracts, undergrad- 
uate and graduate enrollment, degrees 
granted, and total endowment. 

It's award winning faculty are leaders

ence. Programs in Family and Child Scienc- 
es emphasize the health and development 
of children and families through education, 
research and service to the community, 
Programs in Nutrition, Food, and Exercise 
sciences contribute to the prevention of 
chronic disease through the conduct of ap- 
plied and basic research and through strong 
teaching programs. Professional opportuni- 
ties in nutrition, food and exercise sciences 
have increased due to the national inter- 
est in healthy living. Programs in Textiles 
and Consumer Sciences address physical, 
behavioral and economic factors influenc- 
ing apparel/textile product development, 
retail merchandising and residential envi- 
ronments. The curriculum emphasizes the

Dr. Penny Ralston 

Ralston's research and teach- 
ing interests are related to older adult 
learning, community- based programs 
for the elderly, health promotion/nutri- 
tional education, issues affecting the 
minority elderly, and program devel- 
opment in higher education. Ralston's 
interests related to community-based 
organizations for older adults have fo- 
cused on factors related to the de- 
velopment, growth and utilization of 
senior centers. Several studies exam- 
ined minority issues in relation to se- 
nior center use. 

More recently, her interests 
have focused on programs for elders, 
with attention given to health promo- 
tion and nutrition. She completed, 
with Nancy Cohen, a study that ad- 
dressed factors influencing dietary 
quality of elderly blacks, funded by 
the Andrus Foundation. 

As a separate area of interest, 
Ralston has studied Black participation 
in home economics from an historical 
perspective and has also led efforts to 
increase minority involvement in the 
human sciences. In particular, Ralston 
spearheaded a three-year. $250,000 
partnership grant from the U.S. De- 
partment of Agriculture, with three 
partner historically Black colleges and 
universities, that will expose minority 
students to research and graduate 
school opportunities at FSU.

The College of Social Sciences 
houses the Askew School of Public Ad- 
ministration and Policy, Departments of 
Economics, Geography, Political Sci- 
ence, Sociology, and Urban 8c Regional 
Planning. The School of Public Admin- 
istration and Policy provides profes- 
sional education serving government 
just as schools of business, law and 
medicine serve their professions. The 
Economics Department studies how 
institutions, such as markets, arise to 
solve the problem of allocating scarce 
resources among competing ends and 
what the determinants of movements 
in aggregate economic activity are. 

The Geography Department 
emphasizes the investigation of criti- 
cal issues of society and the physical 
environment, including the linkages 
between global and local processes, 
a hallmark of geographic inquiry. The 
focus of the department is built upon 
two foundations of faculty expertise: 
political geography and environmen- 
tal studies. 

The Department of Political Sci- 
ence provides background for careers 
in government at the local, state, and 
national levels; in international organi- 
zations; political campaigns; interest 
groups and lobbying organizations; 
journalism; business; and law. The soci- 
ology department has four substantive 
emphases: health and aging, stratifi- 
cation, and demography. The Depart- 
ment of Urban and Regional Planning 
was created in 1965 in response to the 
growing national demand for persons 
trained in planning, urban affairs, and

David W. Rasmussen 

Dr. Rasmussen, holder of the 
James H. Gapinski Professorship, joined 
the faculty of the FSU Department of 
Economics in 1968 as an Assistant Pro- 
fessor and was promoted to Profes- 
sor in 1979. He received his Ph.D from 
Washington University, St. Louis in 1969 
and his B.A. from Earlham College in 
1964. In addition to his appointment 
in the Department of Economics, Dr. 
Rasmussen served as the Director of 
the DeVoe L. Moore Center for the 
Study of Critical Issues of Government 
and Policy. He received a University 
Teaching Incentive Program Award 
in 1995 and a Professorial Excellence 
Program Award in 1997. Rasmussen 
was named Dean of College of Social 
Sciences in 2003. 

Over his career Professor Ras- 
mussen's scholarly research and poli- 
cy evaluation studies have addressed 
important public policy questions, in- 
cluding economics of discrimination, 
urban and regional economic devel- 
opment, the economics of crime and 
substance abuse policy, and housing 
economics. Professor Rasmussen has 
written (or co-authored) five books 
and published over 75 articles in lead- 
ing professional journals.

Social Work classes were first 
taught in the Sociology Department 
in the 1920s. In 1928 Dr. Coyle Moore 
expanded social work offerings and 
became the first dean of the School 
of Social Welfare when it was estab- 
lished in 1950. In 1973 the program be- 
came the School of Social Work, then 
the College of Social Work in 2005. 

The College of Social Work of- 
fers degrees at the baccalaureate, 
master's, and doctoral levels. The 
MSW degree program at FSU has been 
continuously accredited by the Coun- 
cil on Social Work Education (CSWE) 
since 1950, and the baccalaureate 
since 1974. Social Work's Ph.D. pro- 
gram also was begun in 1974. There 
are presently approximately 300 un- 
dergraduates and 350 graduate stu- 
dents enrolled in the College and the 
faculty numbers 42. 

Administratively, the College 
is directed by a dean, assisted by an 
associate and assistant dean. Other 
administrative faculty members are 
responsible for the doctoral program, 
master's program, undergraduate 
program, part-time programs, inter- 
national programs and field educa- 

During the 2005-06 school year, 
students and faculty from the Col- 
lege of Social Work helped Habitat 
for Humanity build a house, assisted 
Dr. Wendy Crook in a survey of Tal- 
lahassee's homeless population, and 
participated in fundraising events for 
hurricane and earthquake victims. 
The student association also spon- 
sored an art exhibit to benefit victims 
of domestic violence.

A certain indescribable feeling comes with being a member of 
the Florida State family. Steven Koshler understood it the first 
time he set foot on campus. "The feeling you get when you 
walk on FSU's campus is different than other schools I have vis- 
ited. Some give off a pretentious vibe, but at FSU I have always 
felt welcome." 

Steven never let that feeling of comfort turn into complacen- 
cy. His involvement in ProjectFSU and GoodProject included 
street cleanups and home repairs for the less fortunate. He 
has volunteered at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and the Bix- 
ler Emergency Center, showing a dedication to improving his 

Steven's experience at the hospital renewed his vigor for his 
path in the medical field. It led to what Steven describes as his 
most memorable moment at FSU, "my acceptance into Inter- 
national Medical Outreach in the fall of 2004. After a rigorous 
application process, and weeks of waiting, I finally received 
an email congratulating me on my acceptance. I thought, I've 
finally made something of myself as a student here at FSU and 
now it's my turn to give back. I called my parents, sister, grand- 
parents, and best friends. On our medical trip to Jamaica in 
spring 2005, I particularly remember an elderly couple. Their 
gratitude was unlike anything I had ever witnessed. It's one 
thing to hear a thank you from a patient while at work, but it's 
another to hear it from those you didn't have to help in the first 

Steven plans to take a semester off and then enter FSU's medi- 
cal school. "I like the learning environment that FSU provides." 
Our response? Students with Steven's dedication help make 
FSU a superior learning environment.

Latoya can still remember what initially attracted her to Florida 
State University. "The staff here promotes academic excel- 
lence for all students. As a student-athlete, I was extremely 
happy about the university's priorities." 

Latoya's own priorities show in her dedication both to aca- 
demics and to her team. She has been a frequent visitor to the 
Dean's List, and this past fall she was named to the ALL-ACC 
Honor Roll. Latoya says, "One of my University highlights and 
one that is dear to me is going to Strozier Library at any hour, 
day or night, and the library when library is full of students." 

She has shown excellence on the track as well. Her leader- 
ship qualities evident, she was elected team captain of the 
Women's Track and Field Team. She has been honored with 
the Femina Perfecta Award, given to a female athlete which 
most represents the 'complete woman.' 

A cherished moment for Latoya was the unveiling of Florida 
State's bronze, Integration Statue, which pays tribute to the 
first African-American students who integrated the university 
over forty years ago. 

An obviously busy student, Latoya has found time to give back 
to her community by mentoring young student through home- 
work help, coaching and participating in the America Reads 
program offered by the Center for Civic Education and Ser- 

Latoya plans to pursue an MBA in marketing. No doubt she will 
be at the head of the pack in graduate school, just as she has 
been in undergraduate school and on the Florida State Track

At age 17, alone and without financial resources, Alberto Biojo 
left his family home in Colombia to attend college in America. 
He considers the move to be a major life accomplishment. We 
agree, however, looking back on his academic accomplish- 
ments, it's evident that he did not rest upon it. 

Upon arriving at Florida State University in 2003, he began work- 
ing on a double major — Studio Art and Art History — and has 
maintained a grade point average of 3.8. Consequently, he 
became a recipient of two grade-based scholarships awarded 
by FSU's International Center. His high marks also brought him an 
invitation to join the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. 

This rhythm of winning continued. In 2005, Phi Kappa Phi honored 
him with "Artist of the Year," an award judged by a panel of 
faculty. The faculty of the College of Visual Arts, Theatre and 
Dance also honored him with its "Faculty Painting Award." For 
two consecutive years, he had exhibitions in the Oglesby Union 
Gallery: "Self existent" and "Subjugation and conception." 

Though English is not his native language, he chaired the publi- 
cations committee in 2004 for FSU's Art Students League, which, 
in addition to publishing a magazine, organizes art shows and 
hosts special events. Somehow he found the time to join the stu- 
dent's Art History Association, volunteer at FSU's Museum of Fine 
Arts as a docent, and assist with the renovation of the bachelor 
of fine arts' gallery warehouse, the Red Door Gallery. 

Our hope is that more international students like Alberto want to 
attend college in America. We will all be better for the experi-

:ollege of Criminology & Criminal Justice 
005 Humanitarian of the year 

Brittney has a strong drive to give back to the community. She 
earned her College's award by volunteering with America Reads 
at Bond Elementary, by devoting her time at Tallahassee's home- 
less shelter, and by serving two ot her spring breaks for the Al- 
ternative Break Corps — in a Philadelphia inner-city elementary 
school and at the Pelathe Center, a Native American outreach 
center, in Lawrence, Kansas. 

Somehow Brittney has found time for a triple major: Criminology, 
International Affairs and Arabic. She is doing well in all three 

Criminology — She placed first regionally at the Lambda Alpha 
Epsilon Criminology Fraternity Conference in crime scene investi- 
gation and went on to score second nationally in academic test- 

International Affairs — To gain knowledge and experience, she has 
worked as an intern for the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt; the U.S. 
Senate Finance Committee in Washington D.C.; and the Federal 
Bureau of Prisons in Tallahassee. 

Arabic — Brittney has excelled in her study of the language, says 
Professor Zeina Schlenoff. As the representative for FSU's Arab 
Cultural Association, she attended the Arab American Institute's 
National Leadership Conference in Dearborn, Michigan, and this 
past semester she won the David L. Boren Scholarship, which will 
cover all expenses for a year of study in Damascus, Syria. 

Brittany enjoys student life at FSU. Her favorite memories will be at- 
tending football games and especially playing intramural soccer. 

Brittney is now planning for graduate studies in International Rela- 
tions. We know the international community can put this Ameri- 
can humanitarian's energy, talents, and heart to good use.

Florida State is "the best university in Florida," says Mark Carpen- 
ter, ana the reason he came here to study Computer Science. 
Judging from his accomplishments, he's taken full aavantage of 
what the University has to offer. 

Mark was invited into the Honors in the Major Program, which re- 
quires two terms of research with a three-faculty member com- 
mittee and defense of a thesis on that research. He has assisted 
Dr. Lisa Spainhour, Associate Professor in the Department of Civil 
and Environmental Engineering, with TraCS, a traffic and criminal 
software program funded by the Florida Department of Transpor- 
tation and released statewide. 

He's also served as research assistant for one of his favorite pro- 
fessors, Dr. Andy Wang in the Department of Computer Science. 
Mark admires the professor's extensive knowledge and is grateful 
for his insights into systems programming. 

Mark has maintained a 3.7 grade point average, made the Dean's 
List, and has been inducted into the Upsilon Pi Epsilon Internation- 
al Honor Society for the Computing Sciences, which chooses its 
members not only for their scholastic achievement in a comput- 
ing science program, but also for distinguishing themselves as pro- 
fessionals. He's also a member of the Association of Computing 
Machinery, an organization dedicated to advancing the skills of 
information technology professionals and students worldwide. 

Yet, one memory of his time at FSU stands alone for Mark — the 
middle-of-the-semester email from one of his professors, Dr. Ted 
Baker, asking him to serve as Teaching Assistant for the senior- 
level Programming Languages course. He says, "I was honored to 
be offered this position." 

Indeed, Florida State is honored because of Mark's dedication to

Honors in the Major, Theatre 

As an actor, Cameron Diskin takes on the personalities of many different 
people. If done well, the imaginative identification with a character can 
translate the emotional weight of a story to the audience. 

Diskin has taken his studies in Theater at Florida State seriously, and has fun 
doing it. He has become Ottavio, the 17th century Italian lover who, in his 
attempts to obtain his father's approval of the woman he loves, is led into 
a comical farce by the hilariously deceitful Scapino. Not to play the dupe 
continually, Diskin took on a master's role — that of Philostrate, the leader 
of the revelry in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream." 

An actor must be thoroughly trained in voice projection, enunciation and 
body movement. Diskin says, "FSU's Theater students are led by a team 
of skilled professionals: Jean Lickson, Michael Richey, George Judy, Lynn 
Hogan, Paul Steger, Debra Hale, Antonio Ocampo-Guzman, Guy Molnar, 
Ombra Sandifer, Adam Mclean, and Fred Chappell. All the faculty and 
staff have greatly influenced my work, my career, and my life." 

His training was taken to the limits in his role as a paraplegic Vietnam vet- 
eran in Lanford Wilson's "5th of July." Diskin had to embody the charac- 
ter Ken Talley, who must walk with the help of wooden prostheses and 

He had devilish fun playing Ferraillon, a hotelkeeper with a sadistic streak, 
in "A Flea in Her Ear," a 19th century comedy of situation involving mar- 
riage and deception. And in "Romeo and Juliet," he played the opposite 
in personalities, that of Friar Lawrence, the wise and practical priest whose 
only efforts are for the good of others. 

Behind the scenes of this Shakespearean play, Diskin took on the role of 
assistant fight choreographer, directing his fellow actors for their various 
on-stage sword-fights. Diskin learned stage combat, using such weapons 
as the rapier, dagger, sword, and knife, in workshops offered by The So- 
ciety of American Fight Directors. For his Honors in the Major thesis, he will 
perform a stage combat of his own creation. 

As an actor, Diskin will "go where the work leads," but will take a part of 
Florida State with him, "A person changes drastically here in four years. No 
one leaves the same as when they came in."

Michelle Dahnke is the only undergraduate among this year's Guber- 
natorial Fellows, a program for which only the best students in Florida 
are chosen. 

Florida Gubernatorial Fellows plan a future in public service. Through 
the program, Michelle is receiving high-level, on-the-job training at 
the Department of Health's Bureau of Chronic Disease Prevention and 
Health Promotion. Her focus is obesity prevention. "I am especially in- 
terested in exploring how to engage youth to eat healthier and to 
increase their physical activity." 

Michelle is no stranger to accomplishment. She is a member of Florida 
State's Garnet and Gold Key Leadership Honorary, both the Phi Sigma 
Theta and Phi Eta Sigma honor societies, and she regularly appears on 
both the President's List and the Dean's List. So. it's not surprising that 
the National Dean's List and the National Society of Collegiate Schol- 
ars have recognized her. 

Nor is Michelle a stranger to public service. For three months she in- 
terned with Florida's Department of Financial Services, and was a four- 
term peer leader for FSU's First Year Experience Program. Currently, 
she is the Student Government Associations' senior class president, as 
well as vice president of the Omicron Delta Kappa National Leader- 
ship Honor Society and the Mortar Board Senior Honor Society. She is 
a member of the Student Alumni Association and the student chapter 
of the Florida Public Relations Association. Through her membership in 
the Chi Omega sorority, she has received scholarships from both the 
chapter and the national office in recognition of her commitment to 
the University. 

Community service has taken a great deal of her time. She has served 
a variety of organizations, meeting a variety of needs, but the majority 
of her efforts have been for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 

Michelle, however, is making no wishes for her own future. She is mak- 
ing it a reality. Upon graduation, she will work toward a master's de- 
gree in Integrated Marketing Communication. Following that, she will 
work toward a career in Political Communication and Law.

Etienne Charles is playing the jazz heard 'round the world. Covering at least 
three continents, Etienne's jazz is truly bringing down the house. 

Etienne grew up in Trinidad and Tobago, sister isles of the Caribbean, where 
language is spoken in a singsong English and the French-Creole dialect of 
patois. A blend of color and cultures, Trinbagonians communicate dynami- 
cally through music and dance. At elaborate carnivals, Calypso, Steelpan, 
Chutney, East Indian Classical music and Limbo dances intermix. 

Etienne has played his special trumpet blend of jazz at major venues around 
the world — from Jazz at Lincoln Center to Long Beach, California, from 
Thailand to the Netherlands' North Sea. And has performed with legendary 
artists — from rhythm and blues queen Roberta Flack to jazz vocalist Rene 
Marie, from steelpan great Len "Boogsie" Sharpe to calypso legend Lord 

Along the way, he has garnered numerous awards. In 2005, the Interna- 
tional Association for Jazz Education honored Etienne with a Special Cita- 
tion for Outstanding Musicianship and an Award for Outstanding Service to 
Jazz Education. That same year, he won second place in the International 
Trumpet Guild Jazz Improvisation Competition in Bangkok, as well as in the 
National Trumpet Competition Jazz Division held in Fairfax. Virginia. 

His musical studies began at Fatima College, one of Trinidad's prestigious 
institutions. He then went on to study at the Sorbonne in Paris. Next stop, 
Florida State. He had heard the College of Music provided "a nurturing en- 
vironment for young musicians to hone their skills." Here, he considers himself 
"lucky enough to be under the guidance of great music pedagogues." 

We believe great music teachers deserve great students. During his two 
years here, Etienne founded and served as president of the FSU Jazz Soci- 
ety and is a member of the International Association for Jazz Education. He 
has performed with FSU's award winning Jazz Combo 1, the Faculty Jazz 
Quintet, and is the featured soloist in Jazz Ensemble 1. At the end of his 
junior year, Etienne was awarded the Brautlecht Music Scholarship, whose

Aaron Cheesman brings new emphasis to the term "scholar-athlete." 

Scholar. A four-time member of the ACC Honor Roll and a second- 
team Academic All-American, Cheesman has won the Golden 
Torch Award for baseball four times, has been on the President's List 
twice, and on the Dean's List four times. He graduated cum laude 
in May 2004 with a bachelor's degree as a double major in Finance 
and Real Estate. 

Athlete. Senior catcher for FSU's Baseball team, Cheesman has 
been voted captain for the past two years. One of the most de- 
pendable players in the ACC, he started 71 of 73 games at the gru- 
eling catcher position, and led his team to a successful 2005 season 
when many doubted it could be done. Head Coach Mike Martin 
attributes the team's success to "outstanding senior leadership." 

In May 2005, Cheesman was named a first team Academic All-Dis- 
trict selection. This is the second straight season he has been se- 
lected for this honor by the College Sports Information Directors of 
America, which recognizes college scholar-athletes for their ability 
to achieve excellence on the playing field and in the classroom. 

He also has been awarded the 2005 ACC Weaver-James-Corrigan 
Postgraduate Scholarship, given to student-athletes who intend to 
pursue a graduate-level degree. Student-athletes receiving the 
award of $5,000 have performed with distinction in both the class- 
room and in their respective sports. 

Cheesman's plans for his future are clear — to continue in profes- 
sional baseball — he played this past summer for the Philadelphia 
Phillies — and to work toward a second career in financial advis- 
ing — he's now pursuing his master's degree in FSU's Sports Admin- 
istration program.

onors in the Major, Early Childhood Education 

Shaunte Elliott is starting her teaching career a tad early. 
Nominated by Dean of Undergraduate Studies Karen 
Laughlin to lead Freshman Interest Groups, Shaunte will 
help incoming freshman determine which courses are 
appropriate to take, and introduce them to students 
with similar interests. 

She knows the importance of befriending like-minded 
students. She is an active member of the Kappa Delta 
Pi Educational Honor Society, and is a recipient of the 
Outstanding Merit Scholarship from the Florida Fund for 
Minority Teachers. In the spring of 2004, she studied in 
Jamaica through the International Service and Cultural 
Exchange program, Beyond Borders. 

She also knows the importance of academic success. 
Both the W.E.B. Du Bois Honor Society and the Golden 
Key International Honor Society have recognized her. 
She is planning to write her Honors thesis on cultural read- 
ing programs for middle-school students. 

Somehow she finds time for community volunteering — 
at the ECHO Homeless Shelter, Sabal Palms Elementary 
School, and the Educational Research Center for Child 

Florida State will not lose this exceptional student any 
time soon. Once her bachelor's degree is complete, she 
plans working toward a master's degree in Educational 
Leadership and Policy Studies.

to thank the FSU University Musical Associates for 
supporting music students and faculty. He also has 
performed for the Parent/Teacher luncheon and 
at the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra annual

)nors in the Major, Communications Disor 

Kaileen Herring appreciates the contradictory nature of duality, of variety. 

Upon arriving at Florida State, she was overwhelmed by the size of the 
campus and was frightened to be away from her parents for the first time, 
Yet, she also felt at home. "I will never forget that," she says. "So much 
excitement and fear all at the same time," 

She, in fact, specifically chose to attend FSU because the University of- 
fered "a variety of career opportunities and diversity among the students 
and faculty." 

Her chosen major, Communication Disorders, is a discipline that seeks to 
understand the broad scope of human communication, both normal and 
disordered. As an Honors in the Major student, she is busy preparing her 
thesis, "Voice Onset Time in Women as a Function of Oral Contraceptive 
Use." She is also an active member of the National Student Speech Lan- 
guage Hearing Association, a pre-professional organization. 

Now in her senior year, she maintains a grade point average of 3.8. Yet, 
she feels her academic accomplishments are due in part to her teachers. 
"Three professors — Richard Morris, Lisa Scott, and Leonard La Pointe — 
have touched my life in a unique way. Each has taught me a lot about 
the profession and life in general." 

Herring knows that experiential learning helps students connect their aca- 
demic studies to real-life situations. On campus, she combines academics 
with service by serving as the vice president of community service for 
the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and by volunteering for both 
Relay for Life and American Heart Walk. Over semester breaks, she plans 
-^ reactivities for, and assists in the care of, patients at the Hialeah Shore Nurs- 
ing and Rehabilitative Center. 

Her future plans include graduate school and research/clinical work in 
Audiology. She says, "The education I received from FSU will serve as my 
foundation. I am looking forward to giving back to an institution that has 
given me so much,"

Neuroscience, received the 2005 Graduate Scholar 
Award from the FSU Chapter of the Phi Kappa Phi for her 
work on physiological characteristics involved in activ- 
ity-based anorexia. Deann's study of activity-based an- 
orexia in rats led to an animal model for the role physiol- 
ogy plays in anorexia in humans. Her first article on this 
work as a principal author was published in the journal 
Physiology and Behavior in 2003. As a result of this work, 
Deann received the New Investigator Award from the 
Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior, an interna-

tonin on activity-based anorexia. 

Deann has published all her FSU work with her Ph.D. advi- 
sor, Lisa Eckel, an assistant professor in the Department 
of Psychology and the Program in Neuroscience. 

Deann earned her undergraduate degree at Southwest- 
ern University in Georgetown, Texas, after attending 
Clements High School in Sugar Land, Texas. After gradu- 
ation, she plans to pursue a career in research either as a 
professor at a university or a scientist at a pharmaceuti- 
cal company.

imes R. Fisher Fellowship, American Cancer Society 

David Braxton, a graduating Biochemistry major and a graduate of 
Manatee High School in Bradenton, Florida, was awarded the James 
R. Fisher Fellowship of the American Cancer Society for his cancer-re- 
lated Honors Thesis research project entitled "Expression and Subcel- 
lular Localization of the Yin Yang-1 Transcription Factor in Mammalian 
Cells." Braxton is working in the laboratory of his directing professor, 
Dr. Myra Hurt, at the FSU College of Medicine. His project is part of the 
laboratory's program to study the regulation of mammalian gene ex- 
pression, specifically those events controlling transcription initiation in 
general, and in the cell division cycle in particular. 

Braxton's activities outside the research laboratory include his co- 
authorship of a student handbook for first-year freshman students, 
Things I Wish I'd Learned as a Freshman but Didn't Know Who to Ask: 
An Unofficial Guide for Navigating Your 1st Year in College. The hand- 
book project was directed and edited by Dr. Sally Karioth, associate 
professor of Nursing. Braxton continued to follow his interest in men- 
toring new FSU students by serving as a peer leader for the First-Year 
Experience program, a one-credit course designed to help new FSU 
students make the transition from high school to college. 

Braxton continues to serve as a Justice on the Student Judicial 

Braxton was recently elected to Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest 
honor society. FSU has the first Phi Beta Kappa chapter chartered in 
the state of Florida. He is also a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha frater- 
nity, and was on the 2004 Homecoming Court, where he was voted 
first runner-up by FSU students. 

In preparation for medical school, Braxton served as a volunteer at 
the Bixler Emergency Center at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, as 
well as at several shelters for the homeless and long-term care facili- 
ties, Braxton will pursue research in regenerative stem cell medicine, 
with a focus on ways to regrow and repair tissue and organs that are 
damaged by chronic and degenerative diseases.

Wondering how we'll ever stop the invasion of kudzu and Chi- 
nese tallow? 

Thanks to Jean Moriuchi, a Ph.D. student majoring in Ecology 
and Evolution, you're likely to see less and less of the species 
that have invaded our landscapes. And the less you see of 
unwanted plants and organisms, the more you're likely to see 
Jean's scholarship on these invasive species that often have 
detrimental effects on native biodiversity and ecosystems. 

Jean has already collaborated on articles that have been pub- 
lished in The American Naturalist, Community Ecology, Ameri- 
can Midland Naturalist, Diversity and Distributions, Ecology, and 
Biological Invasions. 

Jean's scholarship includes numerous presentations at confer- 
ences, some international, and has earned her the honor of 
being selected to review articles for National Science Founda- 
tion grants and peer-reviewed journals. 

Jean complements her scholarship with volunteer efforts to in- 
form the public, including working as a mentor in FSU's Young 
Scholar's Program to introduce high school students to biologi- 
cal research. 

Her accomplishments have been rewarded through various 
competitions, including FSU Fellowships ($15,000 in '03 and '04), 
the Margaret Menzel Award from the Department of Biological 
Science, an FSU Dissertation Research Grant, a Florida Exotic 
Pest Plant Council Research Grant Award ($2,500), and the 
Robert K. Godfrey Endowment Award for the Study of Botany. 

Reading Jean's vita can lead only to one conclusion: 
Jean means less invasive species.

As a child in his native Uganda, he awoke to the sounds of 
African drums and horns. Today, he stands as a nexus be- 
tween the music of East and West, traditional and modern. 

Damascus kafumbe, graduate student in the ethnomusicol- 
ogy program, is a rising star as a world music performer. He's 
now working on his first CD, "Obudde Bukedde" ("It's Come 
to Morning"), to be released by Sony-Austria. Instruments 
he's mastered span time and place, from piano, trombone 
and French horn to the adungu (Achooli bow-harp), akogo 
(lamellophone), and endingidi (tube-fiddle). 

He has already sounded his ability, through scholarship, to 
preserve and perpetuate East African musical traditions. He 
recently returned from Uganda where he did field research 
for his master's thesis. This past year he was recognized by 
the Division of Student Affairs and the Office of Multicultural 
Affairs for scholastic achievement. 

Damascus has maintained a balance between his academ- 
ics — as student and teaching assistant — and performance, 
serving as director of the FSU African Music and Dance En- 
semble, and performing as the featured musician during the 
College of Music's Ninth Annual Rainbow Concert and for the 
Tallahassee and African Sister Cities Coalition Fourth Annual 
African Awareness Month Celebration & Lecture Series.

As an Honors in the Major student of Chemical-Biomedical En- 
gineering for the past two years, Kimberly Thompson has been 
assisting Professor Rufina Alamo in her Polymer Lab with research 
on propylene copolymers. These semicrystailine thermoplastics 
are widely used in commercial plastics — automobiles, electrical 
insulation, carpet and rope fibers, adhesives, and some plastic 
household items. Copolymerization allows manufacturers to 
make products with the desired physical properties and ensures 
protection of the environment — these plastics are recyclable, 

Kimberly's research, as well as that of Dr. Alamo, Graduate 
Teaching Assistant Anindya Ghosal (Chemical Engineering), and 
Assistant Scholar Jhunu Chatterjee (Mechanical Engineering), 
was recently published in the scientific journal, Polymer. More 
than a year of data collection went into the paper entitled, 
"Linear Growth Rates of Propylene Ethylene Copolymers: The 
Changeover from g dominated to mixed (a+g) polymorphic 

Kimberly finds the coursework challenging, as students follow- 
ing this curriculum are required to assume leadership roles in de- 
sign projects and laboratory experiments. In the Measurements, 
Transport and Unit Operations labs, Kimberly led a four-student 
team in conducting experiments with miniature chemical plant 
.equipment during the complex experimentation phase and for 
the completion of 100-page lab reports, for which, says Kim-

Even with her research work and a challenging curriculum, Kim-

Her Honors work continues. Studying crystallization kinetics and 
the development of crystalline phases in propylene-octene co- 
polymers, she will present the results in her thesis, "Crystalline 
Properties of Propylene 1-Octene Copolymers."

Sexual attraction and the social attachments that often fol- 
low are two of the most powerful driving forces of human 
behavior, writes Neuroscience Professor Zuoxin Wang. 

Anlys Olivera, an Honors in the Major student, has been work- 
ing with Dr. Wang, whose research interests include social 
and drug reward interactions. 

He explains, "There is little doubt that the ability to form in- 
tense social attachments with a mate (pair bonding) has a 
biological architecture with definable molecular and neural 
mechanisms. Because pair bonding and drug reward are 
regulated by very similar neural mechanisms, and because 
both result in enduring changes in behavior, we hypothesized 
that addiction to drugs of abuse and pair bonding may act 
on the same brain-reward circuitry, and that the two may 
interact with each other." 

Anlys is now gathering data in Dr. Wang's lab for her Honor's 
thesis on drug addiction and social behavior in pup prairie 
voles. This is the perfect animal, says the professor, to test 
the hypothesis. Having appeared on the President's List and 
the Dean's List for the prior seven semesters, Anlys has prov-

She wants to complete her doctorate in Neuroscience, and 
has been honored with the means to do so — the Gates Mil-

established the scholarship to encourage students to com- 
plete their undergraduate degrees and to continue on, 
earning master's and doctoral degrees in those disciplines in 
which minorities are underrepresented.

Attending Florida State on a Bright Futures Scholarship, Nicole Cu- 
bides' future looks nothing but bright, maybe even blinding. 

Even though she is an undergraduate, Nicole is enrolled in the Ap- 
plied Economics master's program. She has been hired by the Uni- 
versity as a grader for upper-level Economics courses, positions 
normally reserved for graduate students. And she is currently work- 
ing on her Honors thesis, "Outsourcing Trends," which examines the 
correlation between high wages and outsourcing in the German 
service sector. 

Nicole has been involved in the World Affairs Program with which she 
has traveled to three conferences: the National Collegiate Security 
Council in Washington D.C., and two Model United Nations Confer- 
ences hosted by the University of Pennsylvania and the University 
of California, Berkley. At the National Security Council conference, 
the Florida State team won top awards. Nicole feels she had the 
"amazing opportunity to represent FSU in an academic light. When 
they announced the Best Large Delegation Award, I was ecstatic. 
After three long days of intensive debate and networking, FSU won 
first place against such prestigious schools as Harvard, Columbia, 
and Stanford, and I was a part of this successful team." 

She has been a part of many successful teams during her years at 
Florida State, including the FSU Honors Council, the Center for Civic 
Education and Service for Project PAEC (Panhandle Area Education 
Consortium), as well as completing an internship with the Florida 
House of Representatives. 

Currently, Nicole is a campus manager for Teach for America, a 
non-profit organization that seeks to eliminate inequality in educa- 
tion by engaging the country's top graduates to commit two years 
to teach in a low-income school district. Nicole is one such gradu- 
ate. After completing her two-year engagement with the Teach 
for America Corps, she will attend law school and plans to practice 
environmental or international law.

portunity to transfer learned music therapy skills to real-life 
experiences in the community, and in doing so learned 
what music therapy really is — the ability to use music to 
reach non-musical goals whether physical, emotional, so- 
cial, or psychological. 

Sabina graduated from Charles W. Flanagan High School 
in the spring of 2002, where she was ranked in the top ten 
percent of a graduating class of 1200. 

Sabina currently serves as an advisor for the FSU College 
of Music's Board of Advisors (BOA), assisting incoming 
freshman and transfers during orientation and auditions. 
She plans to continue her education at Florida State Uni-

Most of us have no idea what "aqueous pollutants" 
are or why in the world they would have gliding 
arc discharge. Most of us also aren't spending late 
nights in the laboratory trying to diffuse complex 
compounds. We might not be, but Micah Poplin is. 

Working on his Honors thesis, "Removal of Aqueous 
Pollutants with Gliding Arc Discharge," for which he 
was awarded the Bess Ward Honors Thesis grant, 
Micah is making strides at Florida State in Chemical 
Engineering. "My research uses a high voltage elec- 
trical discharge to break apart complex molecules 
into their elemental components such as hydrogen, 
oxygen, and carbon." After this process, the mol- 
ecules are decomposed by unknown means, "so 
the focus of my study has been to decompose 
molecules that are either difficult or impossible to 
breakdown with the other more established tech- 
niques. Preliminary results have shown remarkable 
degradation of difficult compounds." 

Micah's advancements to his field of Chemical En- 
gineering have not gone unnoticed. After gradua- 
tion in April, he will be well on his way. He has ac- 
cepted a position in operations management with 
the General Mills Company.

Florida State University has students from all over the 
state and the world. The resulting mixture of cultures 
and ideas attracts students who want to interact with 
those who have life experiences different from their 
own. Kaycee Brock admits this is one of the reasons 
she chose to attend FSU. "Coming from a cookie cut- 
ter, suburban area, it was important that I choose a 
school with great academics, as well as many cultures 
that I could appreciate and learn from." 

Kaycee has taken full advantage of the diversity. She 
participated in LeaderShape, and has served as a First 
Year Experience peer leader, as a member of the Stu- 
dent Alumni Association, as the campaign manager 
for the Vision political party, as the president of the 
Association of Prominent Women, and as secretary 
of women's affairs for the Executive Cabinet of the 
Student Government Association. She has also volun- 
teered for both the Boys and Girls Club and the Girls 
Scouts. Currently, she is a very active member of the 
Black Student Union, and is the president of the Zeta 
Omicron chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. 

Kaycee will not cut her ties with the University when 
she graduates. She'll take what she has learned about 
leadership to start a consulting business. "I want to de- 
velop a program for students in grades K-1 2, so that 
they can learn how to be leaders in their schools and

Carlos Julca, an Accounting, Finance, and Marketing major, intends to 
earn a law degree with a focus on tax and immigration so he "will be 
able to provide pro bono services to illegal immigrants in search of the 
'American Dream,' I intend to do my best to help immigrants," 

Attaining his goal will require outstanding academic achievement and a 
strong practice of selfless service. 

Consider it done. 

Carlos has earned membership in many of the most recognized honor 
societies in higher education, including Phi Kappa Phi (top 7.5 percent 
of his class); Golden Key International (top 15 percent of his class); 
National Society of Collegiate Scholars (first- and second-year students 
who rank in the top 20 percent of their class and have a minimum GPA 
of 3.4); and Phi Eta Sigma (freshmen who have a 3.5 GPA and are in the 
top 20 percent of their class). 

Carlos has also been named to the National Dean's List, and the FSU 
President's and Dean's lists, 

His distinguished service career includes serving incoming students as 
an Orientation Leader and First-Year-Experience Peer Leader, and 
membership in the Student Alumni Association and Garnet and Gold Key 

Carlos is also the Assistant Event Manager for the 2006 FSU Dance Mara- 
thon (the University's largest student-run philanthropy, having raised over 
a million dollars for the Children's Miracle Network) and an MLK Mentor 
for the Office of Multicultural Affairs. 

His service to the University and community was recognized this year 
through his selection as a finalist for Chief of the 2005 FSU Homecoming 

When Carlos earns his law degree and begins serving those people who 
have immigrated to the U.S., his work may change, but he'll carry on the 
civic contributions and academic achievements he's lived every semes- 
ter of his university career.

Kerry Devine joined her sorority for the social experi- 

But she quickly found equal satisfaction in doing service 
for the Greek and student communities. 

Kerry Devine's involvement in Greek life and Student 
Government groomed her to become the first president 
of the recently established Greek Activities Council. 

As president, Kerry guides the council as it coordinates 
the collaborative events and programs put on by FSU's 
Greek community. The council's mission is to promote 
inter-council cooperation throughout that community, 
including all of the Pan-Hellenic chapters, the Inter-fra- 
ternity Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council, and 
the Multi-cultural Greek Council. 

Kerry, a senior majoring in Secondary Science and Math- 
ematics Teaching, decided to attend FSU because of its 
"diversity and opportunities." And she's used her oppor- 
tunities—from the Dance Marathon to Peer Education 
on Alcohol, to serving in the Student Senate— to contrib- 
ute to the diversity the university has to offer. 

In addition, many of these opportunities have taken her 
to "places where I met my best friends."

Gavin Weiser wants to be a leader in Education. 

He knows that leadership is the ability to influence 
others while maintaining one's integrity and trustwor- 
thiness, and he has spent the majority of his college 
years honing his skills. 

Gavin began by heading up the skate park of the In- 
dian Springs' YMCA for its after school program, Then 
he served as the high/low ropes facilitator for the FSU 
Challenge, a program that requires group collabo- 
ration to complete challenge courses and problem- 
solving activities. 

For two years he was a teaching assistant for Flori- 
da State's Genesis Leadership Program, a course for 
first-year students that provides classroom training in 
leadership theory and hands-on experiences through 
service projects and community involvement. He is 
also a graduate of LeaderShape, an intense, six-day, 
self-discovery program designed to build leadership 

Gavin continues to gain valuable experience by 
working at the LEAD Center, where he and others 
are currently working on a multi-institutional study of 
leadership. After receiving his undergraduate degree, 
Gavin will continue his studies of Higher Education as 
a graduate student.

If you were to ask Jessie Adala to name her favorite profes- 
sor at FSU, you would get a response that would make any 
faculty member beam with pride. "All my professors have 
influenced and impacted my life indelibly; it would not be fair 
to name just one." Although Jessie cannot name a favorite 
professor, it would be a safe bet that this member of the 
Florida State and National Dean's List has been the favorite 
of more than a few of her professors. 

Jessie was drawn to Florida State University because, "FSU 
has a nationally renowned merchandising program, I felt I 
would be able to learn volumes about the fashion and retail 
industry." Not only has she learned about fashion and retail, 
but also has made an impact as a staff writer for the FS- 

This year alone, Jessie has won three Textiles and Consumer 
Sciences academic scholarships. She has also made an im- 
pact on the community as assistant coordinator for America 
Reads, team leader for the Boys and Girls Club, and she has 
served as president and treasurer for the Pilot Scholarship 
House. Jessie admits it is the simple things on campus that 
she enjoys most — going to the Leach Center — but she can't 
help but think about her future. "I plan to move to New York 
City and work with a national fashion publication, and pos- 
sibly attend graduate school at NYU, Columbia, or FIT." 

Not one of her professors will be surprised when she makes 
an impact there the way she has at Florida State University.

ara Castellana 

2005 Truman Scholar 

By Alonda Thomas 

Florida State University's Cara Castellana has been named a 2005 Truman Schol- 
ar, one of the most prestigious honors an undergraduate can receive. The junior 
majoring in economics will receive $30,000 to study welfare reform at the graduate 
school of her choice. 

"We are extremely proud of Cara," said FSU President T.K. Wetherell. "This is a tre- 
mendous honor that speaks to the quality of the students we have at Florida State 
University and their commitment to serve the nation and the world." 

The Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation awards merit-based scholarships to 
college students who plan to pursue careers in government or elsewhere in public 
service, and wish to attend graduate or professional school to help prepare for their 
careers. Truman Scholars participate in leadership development programs and have 
special opportunities for internships and employment with the federal government. 

"This is the equivalent of being a Rhodes Scholar for a junior," said Jody Spooner, 
director of FSU's Office of National Fellowships, whose office nominated and sup- 
ported Castellana through the application process. "It is a huge honor. We hope this 
is the first in a new wave of student awards that rightfully pay tribute to, and assist, 
our students in reaching their goals." 

A native of Melbourne, Florida, Castellana said her interest in helping people 
developed in stages from a desire to assist the elderly to the mentally feeble to the 
impoverished. By age 16, her tenacious drive to make a difference in the lives of 
others led her to volunteer at the local soup kitchen where she met people from all 
walks of life trying to get out of poverty, but failing. 

"Working there gave me a different perspective," she said. "I know that the 
people at that soup kitchen don't want to be there. They are working very hard 
to fix their situation." Castellana currently volunteers at the Florida Association of 
Community Action Hunger Hotline where she hears the concerns of callers living on 
the welfare system. 

"People call in and tell me how their food stamps got cut off because they were 
late to a meeting." she said. "Then when the stamps are put back on the next 
month, it's only for $200. The average person moving off of welfare is making $6.56 
an hour and that's not enough to support one person, let alone a family." 

With the support of the Truman Foundation, Castellana, an FSU Honors Program 
student, will pursue a doctorate in political economics. Her goal is to work with the 
Social Security Administration and the Executive Office of the President's Office of 
Management and Budget. Positions with these agencies would allow her the op- 
portunity to work on facets of poverty and welfare, such as evaluating the effec- 
tiveness of current social service programs and developing agendas to improve 
public policy. 

In 2005, the Foundation expects to award 70-75 Truman Scholarships on the 
basis of merit to junior-level students at four-year colleges and universities who have 
extensive records of public and community service, are committed to careers in 
government or elsewhere in public service, and have outstanding leadership poten- 
tial and communication skills.

"Florida State can be a perfect fit for any stuaent," says Megan 
Janasiewicz, "as long as you are willing to look for your sense of 

Perhaps it's because her father is a 20-year FSU staff member, or 
because her older brother is "happily enrolled" here. It could be ge- 
netics. Whatever the reason, Megan has wantea her University ex- 
perience to stand out. Ana it aoes. 

She's been invited into two honor societies — Phi Eta Sigma and Omi- 
cron Delta Kappa. She's made the Dean's List three times, has writ- 
ten for University publications on the freshmen experience, servea 
on the Acaaemic Dishonesty Judicial Panel and as a peer advisor 
for Phi Eta Sigma and the Center for Aavising Undeclared Students. 
She's been a grief counselor, an Orientation Leader, the assistant 
director of entertainment for FSU's Dance Marathon, and as a Col- 
lege Board member, she helped raise needed funds. She's the house 
manager for Chi Omega Sorority, and is listed on the Oraer of Ome- 
ga Greek Leadership Honorary. 

Megan's major is Communication Studies. In spring 2005, she pre- 
sented, "Make Them Laugh: Uncertainty Reduction Theory and the 
Effective Use of Humor in Reducing Uncertainty in New Students" at 
the Southeast Regional Orientation Workshop. 

An experience in the spring of 2004 redefined "college" for Megan. 
Through FSU's International Program, she spent a semester in Lon- 
don, earning a minor in British Studies. She now separates her life 
between pre- and post-Lonaon. The "inspirational and educational 
program" taught her a great deal about herself and her country. "It 
gave me a more sophisticated outlook on the world." 

It will come as no surprise then to hear that Megan wants to be- 
come graduate counselor for the London program. "I want students 
to have the same positive study abroad experience that I had."

He came to FSU because the school had "scored" 
with his family — though they weren't official mem- 
bers of the university community and live in Nicevilie, 
Florida, they rooted for the Seminoles. 

Now, as the first generation of his family to attend 
college, he's doing plenty of his own scoring at FSU. 

Check an important academic score sheet — the 
Dean's list — and you'll find Gregory is consistently 
earning a spot. 

And through his volunteer efforts he's become an in- 
tegral member of the FSU support team. 

He has served as an orientation leader, helping to 
usher in new students, and as the Phi Kappa Tau 
Community Service Chair. He's participated in the 
Genesis Leadership Program, a development pro- 
gram for first-year students. He's also served terms 
as Kellum Hall president, and as a member of the In- 
tramural Field and Student Success Building commit- 

"I may have come here because I like the Seminoles," 
Faulk says, "but now I realize that being v Nole is much 
more than just supporting our football team."

a strong academic profile, but also excelling in 
areas outside the classroom. Summer has shown 
she has the work ethic to succeed as a student 
and as a member of the Seminole Volleyball

Summer replied, "FSU felt like the perfect fit for

1usic Director, Florida State Opera Outreach Program 
Graduate Student, Music 

Luis has talents that most of us only dream about possessing. Com- 
bine his talent with his illustrious training and you have one of Flori- 
da State's brightest musical minds. 

He received a Diploma in Chamber Music and Piano Performance 
from the National Conservatoire of Strasbourg, France, and a Mas- 
ters in Piano Performance from the University of Costa Rica. Fluent 
in Spanish, French and English, he has been on the faculty of the 
National University of Costa Rica and the University of Costa Rica. 
He has performed with the National Orchestra of Costa Rica, the 
Chamber Orchestra of the University of Costa Rica, and in a duo 
with his wife, contralto Karen Esquivel. He has also been active as 
the Vocal Coach and Musical Director of the independent Costa 
Rican Young Artist Program. 

Luis selected FSU because of the College of Music's "fabulous in- 
ternational reputation, and its warm, human qualities." In working 
with some of the school's top professors — Douglas Fisher, head of 
the Opera Department, and Timothy Hoekman— -Luis has come to 
understand why. He has gained insights into piano technique and 
the art of accompaniment. In other countries in which he has stud- 
ied, these "were not appreciated." Professor Fisher has taught him 
"to go beyond the music, to think as a conductor and leader, us- 
ing the piano as an orchestra, not just follow the singer," 

He has given back to the community by participating as Music 
Director for the Florida State Opera Outreach Program at elemen- 
tary and middle schools in Tallahassee and as accompanist for the 
Florida State Opera Outreach Tour in Costa Rica. 

When asked about his plans for the future, Luis half jokingly replies, 
"To keep studying!" Whether this implies working toward a doc- 
torate in Accompaniment or working as a musician, we know his 
choice will enrich all those involved in his music.

Kristin Macak didn't want to attend Florida State. Her parents were 
FSU alumni, but she was determined to attend school on the West 
Coast. Then she arrived on campus. "I realized that FSU has been 
pumping through my veins since the day of my birth." 

Her first move was to the ninth floor of Kellum Hall, to become part 
of the Genesis Living Learning Community. The Genesis Leader- 
ship Program provides classroom training in leadership theory and 
hands-on experiences through service projects and community 
involvement. She was awarded the Genesis Unsung Hero Award, 
and joined the government of Kellum Hall. 

In 2004, as an Orientation Leader and as part of UPLink (University 
Peer Link to Incoming Freshman), she helped introduce the Univer- 
sity to new students. As a justice for the Student Judicial Board, 
which she continues to serve on, Kristin affords her fellow students 
the chance for a peer review, 

By this time she had become a "Seminole through and through." 
So, she understood the allure of Homecoming, when alumni, in- 
cluding her parents, return to campus. First, she served as overall 
assistant for Homecoming. Last year, she served as coordinator 
of the festivities. She also joined the Student Alumni Association. 
Then, she became an RA (resident assistant) in Jennie Murphree 
Hall, where she lives and works today. 

At some point in college, many students undergo a life-changing 
experience. For Kristin it was during Dr. Kevin Vaccarella's class, 
Introduction to the New Testament. "He taught me to challenge 
what I am told, to find my own truth." 

Kristin plans to put her knowledge and well-honed leadership abili- 
ties to work in third world countries, through the U.S. Agency for 
International Development, the Peace Corps, or through anthro- 
pological studies. As she says, "The world awaits."

Sharrie Thomas 

epartment of Childhood Education 

On campus and in the surrounding community. In education and sports. 
With preschool children and college students. 

Sharrie Thomas, a sophomore majoring in Elementary Education, is 
working to improve places and support people. The nickname "Good 
Works" would not exaggerate the amount of time or degree of effort 
she has volunteered. 

Through the Jumpstart program, Sharrie joined with 2,500 college stu- 
dents to help 9,400 preschool children build the literacy and social skills 
they'll need to succeed. 

Sharrie is also the Membership Chair of SISTUHS, Inc., a statewide volun- 
teer organization for women of color that originated at FSU to respond 
to the local community's needs and provide moral and educational 
guidance to other young African-American women in the community. 

You might find Sharrie on the basketball courts at the YMCA, where 
she volunteers as a coach. Or you might see her improving neighbor- 
hood scenery, as part of the Adopt-A-Street project. 

Sharrie has also answered the call to do good works on campus. She is 
a student judicial board member and has served on the Student Rights 
and Responsibilities Panel. 

As an Orientation Leader, she has helped incoming students make a 
seamless transition to the University. 

It's all part of her 316 hours in service (thus far) that have been of- 
ficially recorded on her transcript as part of the University's ServScript 

Her voluminous volunteer record has not detracted from her academic 
record: Sharrie has been named to the Dean's List. 

All of which may make her voice just a little sweeter as she sings in the 
FSU Gospel Choir.

dents who present sound and practical information 
about nutrition, physical activity, and body accep- 
tance to the campus community. 

Rebecca even found occasions while studying 
Spanish in Oaxaca, Mexico, to teach aerobics, pro- 
vide dietary consultation, and appear on a public 
access televised fitness program. 

Through it all, Rebecca remains a realist, offering 
tips and strategies for integrating healthy practices 
into our busy and demanding lifestyles. 

Her balanced and inspiring approach earned her

Attending Florida State, says Gabrielle Feltner, "is the quintes- 
sential college experience. This is a university where you can 
take classes from some of the best professors in the world." 
Add the extracurricular activities and "you receive a well- 
rounded education." 

Gabrielle considers one of the best professors to be Judy Bow- 
ers, professor of Choral Music Education. "The ideas she taught 
me about Education are helpful today when I need to commu- 
nicate with different people in various ways." And then there's 
the accessibility of President T.K. Wetherell. Gabrielle and other 
student leaders were invited to dine with him. "It was very re- 
warding. I was able to talk to him about the concerns of the 
every day student." 

The Marketing major is using her newly found knowledge not 
only for her benefit, but for that of others as well. In fact, she 
says, "Community service has always been a top priority of 
mine." Currently, she serves as the president of the Multicultural 
Greek Council. In that capacity, she has been able to sit on 
staff search committees for Greek Life at FSU. She also serves 
as the community service chair for her sorority, Sigma Lambda 

She takes time out for fun, as well. Or, as she says it, "takes 
advantage of all the amenities FSU has to offer" — the cultural 
exhibits in the Museum of Fine Arts and the concerts at the 
College of Music. 

Gabrielle's future plans are not yet set — it's either working in 
Urban Marketing or continuing on for a master's degree. Either 
way, we know she'll be looking at the whole picture.

A doctoral candidate at Florida State University, Lee 
Willis has made his name with a stunning body of 
work that has earned him both renown and awards. 
He has co-authored with William Warren Rogers 
numerous publications — "At The Waters Edge: A 
Pictorial and Narrative History of Apalachicola and 
Franklin County, Florida"; "Creating a Lost Cause: 
Prohibition and Confederate Memory in Apalachic- 
ola, Florida"; "Secession Sanctified: Bishop Francis 
Huger Rutledge and the Coming of the Civil War in 
Florida"; and has written book reviews for H-South, 
Journal of Southern Religion, H-Civil War, and H- 
Florida. His awards are no less impressive, from the 
Kingsbury Fellowship to the LeRoy Collins Award 
for Best Graduate Essay in Florida History. Lee has 
shown himself to be a master at recreating the his- 
tory of the South through the written word. 

At Florida State University Lee has shown a sharp 
mind and a strong work ethic. He is drawn to his 
work, "When I'm here, I'm working. Reading 19th 
century newspapers in the basement of Strozier 
is one of the most enjoyable aspects of my re- 
search." Lee says he plans to "land a tenure-track 
faculty position at a four-year institution" after he 
graduates. It's a sure thing wherever Lee goes, the 
acclaim will follow.

People with the potential to Pe a leader love a challenge. Clin- 
ton Mitchell was drawn to Florida State because, "Being an 
African-American student at a predominantly white institution 
was important to me." Once here, Clinton discovered that the 
University is "big on diversity." 

Leaders have the respect of their peers. Clinton enjoyed be- 
ing an Orientation Leader. He says, "I was able to help thou- 
sands of new 'Noles and their families find their bearings on our 
campus and feel a part of the family." He has also served as 
assistant director of Off-Campus Housing and as a volunteer 
coordinator for the Event Management Team of the Dance 
Marathon. And he has mentored many students through the 
Black Student Union and the America Reads Mentor Program. 

Leaders possess a certain quality that makes people pay at- 
tention to them. Clinton joined the Black Actor's Guild and was 
co-editor of the Black Student Union's "Nubian Waves." 

Leaders show a willingness to take responsibility. Clinton has un- 
derstood the importance of academic achievement. Because 
of his accomplishments in the classroom, he was inducted into 
Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society, 
and Garnet and Gold Key, the Florida State Leadership Honor 

Leaders believe there is always a better way to do things. Clin- 
ton envisions a future in which he is able to find a better way 
for himself and for others. He will continue to build a strong 
foundation, attaining a "jurist doctorate and a master's in Pub- 
lic Administration." Then, he plans to practice law, serving "as 
a state or federal lawmaker." 

Sounds like a leader.

Students stride confidently across campus, aware of destina- 
tion and shortest route. They return to residence halls where 
order and convenience rule. And on weekends they attend 
sporting or other campus events where unified cheers for 'Nole 
performers is magically ignited, 

It's the picture of campus life, and it's partly the result of stu- 
dents like Carolina Orrego, a junior studying political science, 
who continues to contribute her time to improving the student 
experience at FSU. 

Most recently, she was an orientation leader, helping new 
students enter the stream of campus life. She has been the 
treasurer and hall ambassador for Smith Hall, and was recog- 
nized by the National Residence Hall Honorary as Outstand- 
ing Sophomore Leader of the Year. As a Lady Spirithunter, she 
does those little things — from painting faces to volunteering 
at the Dance Marathon — that transform many campus events 
into memorable experiences for the community, 

Carolina is also a bright star within the classroom, making the 
President's list (earning a 4,0 GPA) or Dean's list in the past 
three semesters. Carolina will be inducted into the National So- 
ciety of Collegiate Scholars in fall '05. 

It's no wonder Carolina contributes to the supportive culture at 
the University — it was a major reason she chose to enroll here: 
"When I first came, everyone was very welcoming. It seemed 
like people were happy that I was planning to attend this uni- 

Continuing in the welcoming mode is one of Carolina's post- 
graduation plans. She hopes to own a restaurant where she 
can nourish people's spirits.

He makes things structurally fit and ready to perform — 
from software to peopleware. 

Kwabena Osei, a senior in the computer engineering pro- 
gram, and a native of Botswana, helps people achieve 
their goals, whether it's through software engineered to 
meet a client's needs or at the Leach Center, where he 
is a senior instructor of fitness, training clients, and evalu- 
ating and educating fitness instructors. 

His credentials, for both body and mind, are rock solid. 
He is a Certified Personal Trainer (ACE and IFPA) and 
a member of the National Society of Black Engineers 
(NSBE), the largest student-managed organization in the 
country. He unites his fitness knowledge and engineering 
aptitude in his role as administrator at the Leach Cen- 
ter—assessing the fitness program's customer service 
and processing the program statistics for the vice presi- 
dent of Student Affairs. 

Enormous responsibilities, long hours. But kwabena is an 
energizer — continually modeling his passion for fitness to 
those around him. 

His degree, and his ability to help people reach their 
goals, will make him an attractive candidate to employ- 
ers, who often seek FSU graduates from the computer 
engineering program.

005 Arthur Ashe, Jr. Sports 
cholar and 2006 Rhodes Scholar 

Chosen as a 2006 Rhodes Scholar, Garrett Johnson graduated magna 
cum laude in three years with a double major in Political Science and 
English and will begin graduate school in the fall. The 2005 Arthur Ashe, 
Jr. Sports Scholar is a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Collegiate Honor 
Society and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. The three-time 
ACC Academic Honor Roll member earned the Golden Torch Award given 
to the student-athlete with the highest GPA. Johnson was named to the 
Dean's list three times with a 3.5 GPA or better and President's list with a 
4.0 GPA. 

Johnson works as a legislative assistant in Florida Governor Jeb Bush's 
office. On a daily basis, he researches questions posed by constituents 
and serves on several committees including the Governor's Haiti Advisory 
Council. Since 2004, he has worked in the capacity as the assistant to 
the director of Bush's Haiti Advisory Group, created to compile recom- 
mendations to improve the current economic and environmental condi- 
tions in the country. Other projects include volunteering as a member of 
the Intergovernmental Relations Team during the hurricane emergencies in 
2004, staff support at the Florida State Emergency Operations Center and 
as a campaign worker on the Bush/Cheney 2004 Presidential Re-election 

Within the athletics department, he spent the 2004-05 campaign as the 
vice-chair of the Atlantic Coast Conference Student Athlete Advisory 
Council, president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Council and vice presi- 
dent of Student Seminole Boosters. He volunteered with FSU Cares and 
the FSU Cross Country. In 2004, Johnson represented Florida State at the 
annual NCAA Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida. 

Johnson helped Florida State sweep the Atlantic Coast Conference Indoor 
and Outdoor Track and Field Team Championships, scoring points with run- 
ner up finishes in the shot put in February and the shot put and discus in 
April. His throw of 66'8.75" (20.34m) bettered the FSU Indoor school record 
and was the second farthest throw in the world at the time. He earned 
his first All-American honor with a fifth place finish in the shot put at the 
NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championship. The mark helped score points 
towards FSU's highest team finish in 31 years. He moved into first on FSU's 
all-time shot put list with a throw of 66'0.75" (20.13m) at the Seminole Twi- 
light. The mark is the third farthest in the nation and broke the Mike Long 
Track and Field Complex record.

see, Pankaj is a senior majoring in Biochemistry, Chemis- 
try, and Biomedical Mathematics, Under the supervision 
of Professor Michael Chapman, she is currently working 
on an honors thesis project developing a cell line con- 
taining viral genes that has long term potential for gene 
therapy, As evidenced by recent clinical trials, viruses 
are ideal vectors for gene therapy. Of these, adenoas- 
sociated virus (AAV) is very promising due to its non- 
pathogenicity and range (it can target both dividing 
and non-dividing cells). AAV, however, requires adeno 
virus helper functions in order to replicate, which ne- 
cessitates co-infection/transfection. Establishment of a 
stable cell line containing these adeno helper genes is 
currently underway. 

In addition to receiving a Howard Hughes Fellowship in 
Mathematical and Computational Biology, a Charles 
A, Brautlecht Chemistry Scholarship, and a Bess Ward 
Honors Thesis Grant, Pankaj is a member of Phi Beta 
Kappa, Golden Key, Phi Kappa Phi, and Phi Eta Sigma. 
She is also involved with International Medical Outreach 
whose mission is to unite the efforts of a small group 
of pre-medical students and medical staff in an inter- 
national service learning experience that provides first 
hand medical care in countries less advanced. 

In her spare time, Pankaj plays intramural soccer and 
participates in FSU's chapter of Cuong Nhu Martial Arts

tudent Profiles of Service Winner 

Florida State University has attracted many students be- 
cause of its reputation for offering students opportunities 
for learning, and Nicole Giroux has taken full advantage 
of her opportunites. A junior majoring in Music and So- 
cial Work, she has been consistently on the Dean's and 
President's Lists since her freshman year. Many of her 
memories of FSU will be about football and frisbee with 
her friends. 

Her most intense memory will be her service opportunity 
with FSU's Alternative Break Corp in Panama. She says, 
"I spent an entire week with other FSU students helping 
out at a children's home. It was inspiring to be around 
people who had so much compassion and spirit." 

Nicole is also the Chairperson of the College Board for 
"Lee's Place," in Tallahassee. "Lee's Place," is a private, 
nonprofit, grief and loss counseling center specializing in 
children and families. 

Her community outreach experience has had a major 
effect on Nicole. Upon graduation, and before she be- 
gins graduate studies in Social Work, she plans to "spend 
time volunteering abroad. I would like to work with any 
population in need, to see both the unique and univer- 
sal struggles and achievements of people around the 

Nicole has found not only subjects that interest her, but 
also the passion that will drive her career.

Every student has had at least one special ex- 
perience at Florida State University, a memo- 
rable story that will be told and retold in later 
years. Not many stories, however, will mix mu- 
sic with the outdoors. Lauren will have many 
such stories. 

As fleet captain of the FSU Sailing Association, 
president and founder of FSU Trailblazers, volun- 
teer for Outdoor Pursuits, and sailing instructor 
for the FSU Adventure Day at the Rez, Lauren 
has taken the Seminole experience to another 

The daughter of two Florida State alumni, who 
met as undergraduates at FSU, Lauren has al- 
ways wanted to attend the University. Her 
extracurricular activities have enhanced her 
quality of life at FSU, but six semesters on the 
Dean's List in the College of Music attest to her 
academic prowess. 

After graduation in the spring, Lauren will go 
abroad, where she'll explore, travel, and play 

her own special music.

Singular accomplishments. Extraordinary by any measure. And yet, 
anyone reading Christopher Schoonover's history of distinguished ser- 
vice at FSU would not be surprised by these crowning achievements. 

Christopher, a graduate student in political science, has taken on 
greater and more prestigious responsibilities each year. 

Chief of staff, deputy student body treasurer, member of the Union 
Board, secretary of health concerns, and then student body vice presi- 

Naturally, Christopher is a member of the Seminole Circle of the FSU's 
Omicron Delta Kappa Society, an honor society that recognizes ex- 
cellence beyond academics at the University and emphasizes the ex- 
emplary conduct, unselfish service, and success achieved in worthy 

His excellence beyond academics has not diminished his excellence 
in academics. As a member of the Mortar Board, a national honor so- 
ciety, Christopher has been recognized for his ranking in the top 35% 
of his class. More evidence of his achievement can be found in the 
Journal of Materials Research, where his article "Rapid Prototyping of 
Micro patterned Substrates Using Conventional Laser Printers" (Vol. 17, 
No. 7) was published. 

How does Christopher keep his accomplishments in perspective? By 
seeing them as opportunities to serve others. "The night I was inaugu- 
rated as student body president," he says, "I was given the opportunity 
to represent every student on this campus."

When Debontina Adamson was a 12-year-old in Miami, sur- 
rounded by 'Canes fans and a sea of green and orange, 
she was attracted to the garnet and gold. Now a senior 
majoring in Media Production at FSU, she is the 2005 Overall 
Director of the quintessential 'Nole event: Homecoming. 

Although she hopes to return to Miami and intern at a TV 
network affiliate, she'll be leaving her mark of achievement 
in Tallahassee. 

Debontina has made the Dean's List and received a Boyle 
Scholarship, awarded to students in the Department of Com- 
munication who demonstrate "high academic promise." 

Fellow students have recognized Debontina's leadership 
qualities, having elected her twice to the Student Senate, 
and in 2004, she was elected vice president of the Progres- 
sive Student Assembly. 

She also held the fundraising chair of the Black Student Union 
(the official voice and representative of issues concerning 
students of African descent). 

Her leadership qualities and academic success have earned 
her membership in the Garnet and Gold Key and the Na- 
tional Society of Collegiate Scholars. 

Debontina's successful odyssey to this University has inspired 
four family members to go for the gold... and garnet, and 
enroll in FSU.

As a child of a military family, Allison Liby never stayed in one 
place very long. Continually moving, she didn't have the op- 
portunity to become attached to a particular community. But 
she sensed it would be different here, "i knew Florida State and 
the Tallahassee community would become the home I always 
wanted." The University has become her home because of her 
extensive involvement with academic programs and commu- 
nity service. 

She participates in the Honors Program, Through a directed in- 
dividual study, she will be working on a research project for the 
Florida Museum of History, "focusing on a future educational 
experience for children with the Seminole Tribe of Florida as 
the subject." 

Allison is the vice president-elect of the senior class. With her 
qualifications, it's easy to see why students elected her. She 
has served as an RA (resident assistant) in two dorms. As an 
orientation leader, she introduced incoming freshmen to the 
University. Currently, she serves on the University Admissions 
Appeals Committee and the New Student Convocation Plan- 
ning Committee. She is vice president of public relations for the 
Garnet and Gold Key Leadership Honorary Society, which has 
recognized her with the Torch Award. In 2003, she was given 
the Panhellenic New Member of the Year Award. Today, she is 
the vice president of standards for the Kappa Delta Sorority. 

Not yet into her senior year, Allison is planning a future as a 
teacher in inner-city schools through Teach for America. "There 
is a significant education gap in our country. All children de- 
serve to have a high-quality education that will provide for 
their future success."

Imagine traveling to Jamaica, with sanay beaches, coconut arinks, 
sunshine and the relaxing tropical atmosphere. Sometimes people 
forget that such a paradise is also a community much like ours with 
real needs. Maria is aware of this fact and has set out to make a 
difference to those in need. 

Maria participated in the International Medical Outreach at FSU. 
International Medical Outreach is a program designed to give 
care to impoverished nations outside the U.S. The program allows 
students intense, hands-on medical training while exposing them 
to the social and cultural aspects of practicing medicine. This pro- 
gram took Maria to tropical Jamaica for anything but a vacation, 
Maria and others served the medical needs of the people of Ja- 
maica for ten days. "I'll never forget the first morning of clinic. We 
arrived at the clinic site and were greeted by the praise songs of 
the church members waiting to be seen. I remember thinking the 
people had so little, but they were rejoicing for what was provid- 
ed." Maria feels she earned not only the knowledge she gained in 
the medical sense, but the respect for another culture. 

Maria is not only a member of the International Medical Outreach 
program, but recently served as its director. Says Maria, "I was 
drawn to FSU because of challenging academics as well as re- 
nowned scientific faculty." She is undertaking a Directed Individual 
Study Research Project under one of her favorite professors, Dr. 
Robert Reeves. Her research topic is "The Cloning and Expression 
of the argW Gene of Escherichia Coli." 

After Maria graduates with her degree in Biological Science she 
plans to attend medical school. "My goal as a future physician is to 
provide health care to this growing population of people who do 
not have the resources to receive the medical care they need," 
Maria says. No matter where Maria goes or what Maria does, Flor- 
ida State will always be a special place to her. "I will always be 
proud to be a Seminole!"

a $10,000 scholarship. The award holds a wealth of pres- 
tige, recognizing students who excel academically and 
who are members of historically underrepresented groups 
in the medical field. With only seven percent of the coun- 
try's physicians falling into this category, Ivan's accomplish- 
ment is clear. 

This, however, is not Ivan's first scholarly award. As an under- 
graduate, he was invited into the National Biological Honor 
Society, which is dedicated to extending the boundaries 
of human knowledge through research. He has also been 
the recipient of the College of Medicine's Dean's Scholar- 
ship 2004-2008, the Durell Peaden Scholarship 2004-2006, 
and the E.C. and Tillie Allen College of Medicine Scholarship 

Ivan isn't all academics, as seen through his involvement in 
community projects such as "Get Active" and SIGN (Stu- 
dent Interest Group in Neurology). He has also participated 
in events sponsored by the W.E.B. du Bois Honor Society, of 
which he is a member. The Society sponsored a commu- 
nity workshop, giving Ivan the opportunity to volunteer with 
children at the Dade Street Community Center. 

Upon completion of his graduate work, Ivan will "stay in Flor- 
ida and serve in the communities that were (and still are) so 
influential in creating the person I am today." 

The opportunities provided to student athletes at Florida 
State are obvious, What are not so obvious are the ex- 
periences beyond sports that many athletes gain, Me- 
gan Head has made her university experience richer by 
not only excelling in academics, but also by participat- 
ing in community service projects, 

Throughout her role as Special Events Coordinator for 
Helping Every Little Person (HELP) and her participation 
with the Radio Reading Service, which broadcasts read- 
ings of the local newspaper for sight-impaired people, 
Megan has shown compassion and a willingness to reach 
out to the community, She also has served as the Bat Girl 
and Spirit Coordinator for FSU's Baseball team, and has 
been active in Dance Marathon, 

Megan not only chose FSU for its superlative scholastics, 
"but also for all of the traditions, and for the friends" she 
hoped to make. This doesn't mean she's relaxed her 
academic standards, She's made a place for herself on 
the Dean's List since 2002. She is a Torch Night Recipient, 
and is a member of the National Society of Collegiate 
Scholars, Phi Eta Sigma, and Honors in the Major. 

She will soon graduate with a degree in Mass Media. Law 
school is probably her next step. One thing is for certain, 
Megan will be a leader wherever her scholastic pursuits 
take her.

dwater Scholarship 

Gabriel Bouch was a junior when he discovered a counter-exam- 
ple to a conjecture made by a well-known mathematician in the 
field of Knot Theory. Unraveling the conjecture was quite a feat for 
an undergraduate. 

But for Gabriel this was only the first in a series of impressive 

By his senior year he had received a Barry Goldwater Scholarship, 
awarded by a federally endowed agency established to honor 
the late senator. Gabriel was then invited to join the Pi Mu Epsilon 
mathematics honor society, whose membership is restricted to stu- 
dents ranked highly in their class. 

By graduation, the tally for this double major (in math and physics) 
was steadily increasing: he'd completed the Honors Program and 
graduated summa cum laude with a 4.0 GPA. 

Although Gabriel's academic life invokes the image of a student 
stationed at his computer, books, or lab 24/7, he's kept a fine bal- 
ance, spending three years as a juggler in the FSU Flying High 

"I had a great experience as an undergraduate at Florida State," 
Gabriel says, "and made strong connections with professors in the 
mathematics and physics departments. It followed naturally to 
continue my studies in a program that I had found to be academi- 
cally stimulating and personally rewarding." 

And rewards keep coming. As a graduate student, he has been 
a two-time recipient of a University Fellowship and was awarded 
the Goodner Teaching Award. Gabriel is currently doing research 
in mathematical physics with Dr. Phil Bowers, and the two are col- 
laborating on a paper they hope to submit for publication this fall.

making an IMPRESSION 

Kristen Leone 

They're everywhere in Tallahassee: at the mall, in Starbucks, 
out at restaurants and even at the Leach center, Others yell them 
out at certain events like Lip Sync, Dance Marathon, and also at 
Homecoming. But what is the meaning behind the Greek letters that 
appear all over Florida State's campus? What impact do they truly 
have on the people and the campus that they come in contact 

Striving to improve and enhance the campus of Florida State 
University, Greek Life members eagerly participate in many campus 
organizations. Using the leadership skills they have learned from with- 
in their organizations, these students set out with a mission to get 
involved and encourage others to do the same. From smaller groups 
and clubs, to larger, campus-run organizations such as Dance Mara- 
thon, Greek members can be found everywhere participating and 
becoming active on Florida State's campus and in the Tallahassee 
community as well. 

With each house hosting their own philanthropic event, Greek 
members are passionate about giving back to the community and 
becoming devoted to certain benefits and charities. For example, 
the philanthropy hosted by Zeta Tau Alpha is their 5K Race to Live 
held in the spring, and all profits are donated to the Susan G. Koman 
Breast Cancer Foundation. It extends invitations to not only students, 
but to all members of the community as well. Another example of a 
philanthropic event, the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority is the proud host of 
their annual ADPiathlon, a fun filled day of pie-related relay events 
that benefits the Ronald McDonald House. All other houses put their 
own philanthropic event as well, and in turn all other organizations are 
eager to participate in them and donate to their worthy causes. 

On a larger scale, campus-run events such as Dance Mara- 
thon and Homecoming are looked forward to by the Greek commu- 
nity each year. A friendly competition between houses, each group 
strives to raise the most amount of money for Dance Marathon and 
Children's Miracle Network, and show their ultimate Florida State 
pride during Homecoming week. Not only do Greeks avidly partici- 
pate in these events, but most of the leadership and assistant posi- 
tions in both are occupied by members of the Greek community. 

In addition to their devotion to involvement on campus and 
within their own events, Greek members are active in clubs, sports, 
and in other organizations as well. Greek life is a great way to ex- 
tend beyond individual houses, develop valuable leadership skills and 
meet new people along the way. Not only is passion encouraged, 
but it is apparent in all of the activities that Greeks participate in.

The ladies of the Beta Eta chapter of Alpha Chi Omega celebrate 
another great year on Florida State's campus. They enjoyed a proud tradition 
of good scholarship, community service and campus involvement. Their sis- 
ters are members of over fifty different organizations on the FSU campus, 
such as: Order of Omega, Seminole Student Boosters, Golden Girls, FSU 
cheerleaders, Honors Council, and many more. 

Their service projects include Relay for Life, America Reads and 
Garnet and Gold Goes Green. Their major philanthropic event is their an- 
nual Omega Man fraternity pageant and date auction. Proceeds from this 
event benefit the local branch of the Women's Refuge House. Their national 
philanthropy is the Alpha Chi Omega foundation, which has received nu- 
merous awards throughout the year. They earned the highest overall women's 
GPA for the fall semester and continue to "strive for pi" - their goal is to 
have a chapter-wide GPA of a 3.14 or better. They were awarded second 
place overall for FSU Homecoming. They also won first place in the gold 
division of Dance Marathon, along with our partners Delta Delta Delta and 
Phi Delta Theta. 

Alpha Chi Omega continues to strive to uphold the core values of 
the Greek community and Florida State University by celebrating diversity, 
serving their community and upholding our high standards for academic 
and personal excellence.

Alpha Delta Pi is a sisterhood based on a long line of traditions, 
kin, philanthropy and a true love for one another. 

ADPi is one of the largest Panhellenic chapters on Florida State's 
campus with nearly 185 members and has several girls who are very in- 
volved within the Greek community and on FSU's campus. ADPi proudly 
represents in organizations ranging from SGA to the Student Alumni As- 
sociation to even prestigious honor societies such as Omicron Delta Kappa 
and Mortarboard. 

This past year has been a very busy one for then; they kicked off 
the school year participating in many sorority and fraternity philanthro- 
pies as well as participating and winning Homecoming overall. During the 
spring semester, ADPi took part in FSU's largest school wide philanthropy, 
Dance Marathon, with over 40 dancers and several committee members 
and assistants. They helped raise $270, 511 for the Children's Miracle Net- 
work and gladly won third place. They are also very committed to their 
philanthropy, which benefits the Ronald McDonald House through our 
annual ADPi-athlon competition hosted in April. 

ADPi is also very proud to have members on the Golden Girls 
dance team, the all-girl and co-ed cheerleading squads, Garnet and Gold 
Guides and the FSU Batgirls.

Alpha Gamma Delta was founded at Syracuse University on May 
30, 1904. The Gamma Beta chapter at Florida State University was founded 
on January 22, 1925. Their symbol is the red and buff rose, their colors are 
red, buff and green, their mascot is the squirrel, and their philanthropy is

and philanthropy. They are a sorority dedicated to preserving sisterhood and 
the love of friendship. 

Since 1925, Alpha Gams have been a major part of Florida State 
University. The Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation raises money for Juvenile 
Diabetes and at Florida State they have an annual philanthropy event, Water 
Wars, which raises money for our foundation. At this event they play slip 
and slide, tug-o-war, and many other water games. They also participate in 
Dance Marathon, raising money for the Children's Miracle Network, as well 
as Homecoming week and other Greek philanthropies. 

Their sisters participate in many organizations on campus and hold 
leadership positions in groups such as: Panhellenic Executive Board, College 
Democrats, College Republicans, SUNN, CHICS, Advertising Club, and 
many others. 

They look forward to continue our tradition on Florida State's 
campus while preserving their sisterhood and love of friendship.

The Greek Cup to benefit the Speech and 

Hearing Impaired 

<MW 2eW 

The founding principles of Delta Zeta are sisterhood, scholar- 
ship and service. They take great pride in our strong commitment to both 
their own philanthropy as well as others around campus. The Alpha Sigma 
chapter of Delta Zeta contributes to their national philanthropy aid to the 
speech and hearing impaired, in several ways. A portion of our monthly 
dues is donated to Gallaudet University and the House and Ear Institute 
through our National Headquarters. They also sponsor their own campus 
philanthropy, the Delta Zeta Greek Cup. 

The Greek Cup is an all day soccer tournament they hold each 
spring. Both sororities and fraternities are encouraged to get involved and 
the proceeds are given to National Headquarters for them to donate to 
help the speech and hearing impaired. Another way they help our national 
philanthropy is by competing in campus philanthropies. Whenever Delta 
Zeta places in another organization's philanthropy, the fraternity or soror- 
ity who sponsored the event often makes a donation to our national phi- 

Delta Zeta is constantly participating in campus activities such 
as Homecoming and Dance Marathon. They raised thousands of dollars 
to benefit Children's Miracle Network and during Homecoming, their skit 
placed first.

The Ladies of Gamma Phi Beta are always held to the prin- 
ciples set by their founders. Their foundation, the first to be named 
a sorority, was built on the ideals of the highest type of womanhood. 
These ideals encourage social involvement, academic achievement, 
leadership and dedicated to service. 

Sisters can be found participating in all aspects of the Greek 
and university communities. From FSU cheerleaders to Student Sen- 
ators, honor societies to community service activities, Gamma Phi's 
are evident on campus. Their priority is to set a principle of loving 
sisterhood and lifelong friendships. Through socials, sisterhood re- 
treats, various campus events, and philanthropic functions they create 
memories that bond them as sisters.

Delta Delta Delta was founded on November 28, 1888 at Boston 
University by Sarah Ida Shaw. She wanted to create a society that was different 
than all the other sororities on her campus. She felt the need to emphasize a 
very close sisterhood, and included ladies with high goals and ideals. 

Delta Delta Delta sorority was founded upon the principle of, "Be- 
ing a society that shall be alike to all and think more or a girl's inner self and 
character than of her personal appearance." The motto that all Delta Delta 
Delta members are held to is; "Let us steadfastly love one another." Their na- 
tional philanthropy is St. Jude's Hospital, and they have an event each semester 
to help raise money for this charity. They are also active members in Florida 
State's Dance Marathon philanthropy. Dance Marathon is a weekend event, 
where volunteers stay on their feet for a whole weekend and dance. Tri-Delta 
won first place this year, and together every organization involved raised about 
$270,000. Also one of our members, Jaimee Colley, was picked as Panhallenic 
President this year. 

Their goals for the future are to uphold the standards that our sorority 
was founded upon, and to constantly grow and mature with each other. Their 
sisterhood is very important to us, and they always strive for a strong bond 
between their members. They try to stay very active in all Florida State's events. 
They support the Seminoles at games, charity events, and all Greek Life oppor- 
tunities offered.

The objectives of Delta Gamma are to implement high ideals of 
friendship among college women, to promote their educational and cultural 
interests, to create in them a true sense of social responsibility and to de- 
velop in them the best qualities of character. 

Delta Gamma's primary purpose is to create an environment for its 
members in which lasting friendships are established and in which members 
find the processes, the experiences and the disciplines that will stimulate 
clear thought. Its aim is to foster an atmosphere in which women will de- 
velop a deeper love and consideration for mankind, a more profound un- 
derstanding of the purpose of life and a basic wisdom upon which to build 
their lives. 

Delta Gamma encourages active participation in all areas of Flor- 
ida State University's campus. They strive to motivate members to enrich 
their lives by involving themselves in other organizations around the univer- 
sity. As a sorority, They are committed supporters of all activities and events 
held at Florida State University. Delta Gamma does not only fully supports 
the university, but they also focus our ideals on giving back to the Tallahas- 
see community through philanthropic events and other community service

\w&M/ <&&&&/ 'ffirta 

Since its founding, the Florida State chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta has held a 
strong presence within the Greek community, as well as on Florida State's campus. Thetas 
participate and hold leadership positions in various organizations, such as Panhellenic Exec, 
Golden Girls, Order of Omega, Dance Marathon Overall, FSU sports teams, FSView, 
Greek BASIC, Seminole Boosters, Lady Renegades, College Republicans/Democrats, FSU 
Student Government, various clubs, medical associations and honor societies, and many 

Every year Kappa Alpha Theta holds our Philanthropy "Kats &C Bats", a waffle-ball 
tournament that takes during the spring at the Intramural fields. All sororities and fraterni- 
ties are invited to participate, as well as IM teams and teams from various dorms around 
campus. While all participants play and have fun, all the money being raised is donated to 
CASA- Court Appointed Special Advocates. 

Theta finds that participation in other Sorority and Fraternity Philanthropies is 
also extremely important. While having a good time competing and often winning at these 
philanthropic events, they realize that they are sisters of a much bigger Panhellenic com- 

While Kappa Alpha Theta promotes participation in campus activities and orga- 
nizations, they also value academic achievement. With many members on the Deans List, 
their chapter continually succeeds in scholastic achievement, ranking in the Top 5 among 
Panhellenic sororities in GPA every year. 

While academics, campus involvement, and community service are all important 
to Kappa Alpha Theta, it is thier Sisterhood that we cherish most. They leave FSU with 
cherished memories and lasting friendships. After all, they are Thetas for a lifetime. . .

At Kappa Delta, they take pride in being the first sorority at Florida State 
University. Their chapter was chartered on November 4, 1904. Over the years, 
Kappa Delta has embraced many FSU traditions and celebrations. They work hard 
to support not only the campus but also the Greek communities. Their members 
are well-accomplished in academics, community service, and social life. They al- 
ways strive to join outside campus organizations, achieve leadership positions, and 
provide leadership within their organization. It is the strong sisterhood that enables 
them to attain such feats and they are blessed to have a helpful and involved alum- 
nae association. This group of Tallahassee women and their families provide endless 
guidance and support. 

Every spring. Kappa Delta hosts a philanthropy called Manhunt, which is 
a two day event consisting of paintball tournaments. Local businesses and campus 
organizations compete the first day, and fraternal gentlemen compete the second 
day. This year, Kappa Delta included sororities in participation by hosting a trunk 
show, of which a portion of the proceeds went to Prevent Child Abuse of America 
and Children's Home Society of Florida. Kappa Delta takes pride in finding a 
unique and fun way to raise money for such good causes. 

It is the merging of National Kappa Delta and Florida State University 
that makes this chapter so special. They take extreme delight in not only being 
dedicated Kappa Deltas but also dedicated Seminoles! Every day, they strive for 
that which is honorable, beautiful, and superior.

Reading is Fundamental (R.I.F.) 

rZfoM/ r&to&fy MfryvW/ 

Founded in 1870 at Monmouth College, Kappa Kappa Gamma is 
one of the oldest women's fraternities. An international chapter, their sister- 
hood extends over 131 collegiate chapters and over 330 alumni associations 

In Kappa, not only do they strive to enrich the college experience 
overall, but their sisterhood also encourages academic excellence, involvement 
in organizations on campus, and the creation of friendships that will last for a 
lifetime. Active on FSU's campus, Kappas can be found participating in many 
organizations. Lacrosse, The FSU Renegade, Lady Spirithunters, Golden 
Ace Ladies, GAMMA, Order of Omega, Greek Activities Council, Emerging 
Leaders, Orientation Leaders, and NSCS are just some of these groups. Home- 
coming is always a chance for their sisters to show their Seminole pride and 
their ladies work hard to show just how much it means to us to be a Nole. For 
Dance Marathon, their ladies take part of the largest philanthropy on Florida 
States campus, and devote hours on end to a cause that is held to closely to 
their hearts. 

On a national level, Kappas donate their time and attention to RIF 
(Reading is Fundamental), and work with the Gretchen Everhart School creat- 
ing and adapting books for their students. In other philanthropies, they have 
reached first place in Sandslam, first place in Relay for Life two years in a row, 
and among other accomplishments they have also had ladies in positions of 
overall Dance Marathon representatives as they strive for leadership, service, 
and sisterhood.

Phi Mu was founded at Wesleyan College in Macon, GA on March 
4th, 1852. Their three founders Mary, Mary, and Martha gave Phi Mu its guid- 
ing principles of Love, Honor, and Truth. Phi Mu's colors are rose and white 
with a rose carnation as their flower and Sir Fidel, the lion, as their mascot. 
"Les Soures Fideles" is their open motto that means Our Faithful Sisters. This 
sorority is faithful to their unbreakable bond and sisterhood as well as their 
commitment to service and tradition. Phi Mu hosts its annual Philanthropy, 
Grandslam, where all the Fraternity men come out to play in a baseball tourna- 
ment to help raise thousands of dollars for the Children's Miracle Network. 

This past year Phi Mu has participated in various activities on campus 
including intramural sports, philanthropies, and dance marathon. Their strive 
to succeed has won them awards such as Miss Regatta for Phi Kappa Tau, 1st 
in women's softball overall, Phi Delta Theta's Bed race champions, sorority 
kickball champions, and 2nd place in Sigma Alpha Epsilon's Sweetheart Pag- 

Phi Mu is not just a group of girls living in a house attending socials 
and hayrides, but individuals making a difference in the community. There are 
sisters leading youth groups and participating in numerous community service 
projects nationwide. With such love and strength these girls look up to fellow 
alumni such as Anne Bowden, wife of FSU football coach, Bobby Bowden, 
and Evett Simmons, President of the National Bar Association. As the year 
comes to an end, Phi Mu would like to say congratulations to their Graduating 
Seniors of 2006.

Since Pi Beta Phi was first installed on campus they have made 
our mark at FSU. They pride ourselves on being women of integrity, and 
strive for excellence in everything that we do on campus. They work hard to 
uphold the long, rich history in value sand tradition upon which they were 

Every spring they put on the All Fraternity Review, a popular phi- 
lanthropy on campus that raises money for our National Philanthropy, the 
Arrowmont School for the Arts. They also are very involved in our local phi- 
lanthropy, links to literacy. Through links to literacy they spend countless 
hours promoting literacy within the community and reading to children at 
elementary schools. 

They show our school spirit across campus by having members in- 
volved in numerous and diverse organizations, from Lady Spirit Hunters 
to Student Government to Orientation Leaders. They also exemplify FSU 
spirit by being active participants in Homecoming, Dance Marathon, and 
many other philanthropies. For the future, they plan to continue to help 
their philanthropies grow and advance as an organization every year by be- 
coming more involved than they already are on campus.

The ladies of Sigma Delta Tau exemplify FSU spirit in a variety of 
ways. Although they are the newest sorority on campus, they have worked 
hard this past year to make a name for ourselves. 

They started off on the right foot this fall by placing third overall in 
Homecoming. SDT has also participated in numerous community service 
activities including Dance Marathon, Relay for Life, and other programs that 
are run solely through their house such as donating troop care packages, pro- 
viding hurricane relief, and adopting children through Big Brother and Big 
Sister. Sigma Delta Tau's philanthropy proceeds are given to "Prevent Child 
Abuse America" and in addition to their own philanthropy, they always par- 
take in other Greek Philanthropies. This past semester they placed first in 
Delta Delta Delta's Tug of War, second place in Alpha Epsilon Pi's Greek Idol, 
and third place in Tau Epsilon Phi's Caddy Shack. 

Not only did the Sig Delts attend every football game this fall, but 
they even let our parents in on the excitement. During Parents Weekend, all 
of their parents were invited to watch the football game with them, enjoy a 
BBQ afterwards, and attend a brunch at thier house the following day. Ad- 
ditionally, SDT has done a great job in IM sports this past year. They took 
third place in the 200 free-style in swimming, placed third overall in Eight 
Ball, and won all three of our regular season matches in bowling. They hope 
to become one of the top teams in Flag Football next year and to compete 
for a championship title in Volleyball. Sigma Delta Tau has had an amazing 
school year, and they look forward to even more success next year!

The mission of Zeta Tau Alpha is to make a difference in the lives 
of their membership by developing the potential of each individual through 
visionary programming which emphasizes leadership development, service to 
others, academic success and continued personal growth for women with a 
commitment to friendship and the future based on the values and traditions 
of our past. 

In 1992, Zeta Tau Alpha adopted Breast Cancer Research as the 
Fraternity's national philanthropy. This is done partially through sponsoring 
the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. At the Beta Gamma chap- 
ter, they host two fundraisers a year to raise money for our philanthropy. In 
the fall semester, they host a flag football tournament, Crown Classic. Boys 
around campus and the Tallahassee community gather together for a day of 
football and fun. Around 64 teams participate in this fun event. In the spring 
they host our annual Race to Live, which is a 5K race that gets the entire 
campus and community involved. Last year they raised over $20,000. 

The motto of Zeta Tau Alpha "Seek the Noblest" can be seen through 
leadership positions held by Zetas in many of Florida State University's cam- 
pus organizations. Their chapter plays an active role in the Florida State Uni- 
versity community through participation in campus wide community service 
efforts as well as events such as Homecoming and Dance Marathon that have 
become a part of Florida State's growing tradition.

it's RECRUITMENT week 

Samantha Messinger 

On a sunny day in late August, 1 ,200 girls woke up to thoughts 
of wonder, excitement, and hope; not knowing what to expect of 
the week to come, but wishing for the best. These girls were pre- 
paring themselves for Florida State's Sorority Recruitment Week. 
Recruitment week, filled with emotion and exhaustion, is a full sev- 
en days designed so that each and, every girl gets a chance to 
meet some of the girls from every single sorority house. 

The first two days, known as ice water days are set up so all 
fifteen houses are visited between the two days. During these first 
two days, first impressions are made and countless introductions 
take place. After the completion of ice water days, the process 
called mutual selection takes place. During this process, both the 
sororities and the girls going through recruitment, also known as 
Potential New Members, make choices and selections depending 
on which girls are best fit for each house. 

The next two days, known as philanthropy days, the girls 
re-visit the houses and take part in each sorority's craft to benefit 
the charity the house represents. After learning about each charity 
and getting a better feel for the sorority, the girls take part in an- 
other round of mutual selection. The next round of days is known 
as skit day. During skit day, each house performs a play or skit 
portraying the sorority on a more personal level. Another round of 
mutual selection takes place and the final day of visiting houses 

Preferential day, or "pref day" gives the potential new mem- 
bers a glimpse into sorority rituals or ceremonies. Pref day is a much 
more serious and formal day and serves as a last chance for the 
girls in the sorority and the girls going through recruitment to figure 
out which house best suits them. After the day has ended, one 
last round of mutual selection takes place before everyone goes 
home for a sleepless night filled with excitement and wonder as to 
which house they will call their own. 

The last day, known as bid day, begins with a closing cere- 
mony highlighting all the ups and downs of the past week. Following 
the ceremony, each girl receives a bid and a T-shirt corresponding 
with their new sorority house. After receiving and accepting their 
bid, the girls run down to their new home where the excited girls in 
the sorority are waiting with open arms to welcome them into their 
new family.

Since its founding on December 4, 1906, Alpha Phi AlpmN^-aternity, Inc. has 
supplied voice and vision to the struggle of African-Americans and people of color around 
the world. Alpha Phi Alpha, the first intercollegiate Greek-letter fraternity established 
for African- Americans, was founded at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York by seven 
college men who recognized the need for a strong bond of Brotherhood among African 
descendants in this country. The visionary founders, known as the "Jewels" of the Frater- 
nity, are Henry Arthur Callis, Charles Henry Chapman, Eugene Kinckle Jones, George 
Biddle Kelley, Nathaniel Allison Murray, Robert Harold Ogle, and Vertner Woodson 

The Fraternity initially served as a study and support group for minority stu- 
dents who faced racial prejudice, both educationally and socially, at Cornell. The Jewel 
founders and early leaders of the Fraternity succeeded in laying a firm foundation for 
Alpha Phi Alphas principles of scholarship, fellowship, good character, and the uplifting 
of humanity. 

Alpha Phi Alpha chapters were developed at other colleges and universities, 
many of them historically black institutions, soon after the founding at Cornell. While 
continuing to stress academic excellence among its members. Alpha also recognized the 
need to help correct the educational, economic, political, and social injustices faced by 
African-Americans. Alpha Phi Alpha has long stood at the forefront of the African- 
American community's fight for civil rights through leaders such as: W.E.B. DuBois, 
Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., Edward Brooke, Martin Luther King, Jr., Thurgood Marshall, 
Andrew Young, William Gray, Paul Robeson, and many others.

On May 24, 1973, nineteen visionaries sought out to es%»lish a chapter that 
would embody an unconditional commitment to the Tallahassee community, impact the 
lives of the Florida State student body, and epitomize Delta Sigma Theta's illustrious ideals 
of sisterhood, scholarship, service, and Christian principles. Out of forty applicants, these 
nineteen dynamic and distinguished women were chosen to fulfill their quest and charter 
the Kappa Epsilon Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. 

The Kappa Epsilon Chapter is dedicated to service and excellence and since its 
inception has achieved recognition for its extensive involvement on campus and in the 
community. The chapter holds the distinction of receiving the Minerva Award in 1993, 
National Pan Hellenic Council's Sorority of the Year, several Extravaganza champion- 
ships, and National Pan Hellenic Councils Greek Woman of the Year. 

In keeping with the prestige of the organization the members of Kappa Epsilon 
continue to demonstrate high scholastic achievement while exemplifying strong leader- 
ship abilities. The devastating divas of the Kappa Epsilon Chapter contributed to the 
community by volunteering in numerous community centers, schools, nursing homes, as 
well as involvement in coordinating and implementing activities that address political and 
social awareness issues. Their significant acts of servitude also include monetary contribu- 
tions such as the Wandretia Warren Scholarship Fund and other charitable donations. 

As the future approaches, the Kappa Epsilon Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta will 
proudly continue to strive and uphold the exceptional legacy of this prolific and profound

the Florida State University and Tallahassee communities as philanthro- 
pists and mentors initiating numerous initiatives that have bettered their 
surrounding environment. As pioneers of consistency, the Theta Eta 
Chapter has proven to be a phenomenon winning five consecutive Na- 
tional Chapter of the Year Awards, six National Undergraduate Brother 
of the Year Awards, as well as earning the 2005 NPHC Chapter Excel- 
lence Award. The men of the Theta Eta Chapter demonstrated a suc- 
cessful formula for ACHIEVEMENT and continue to thrive as campus 
scholars, leaders, and men of service at the Florida State University.

In the fall of 1967, nine men came together to estaVl«h their unity as 
blacks at the Florida State University, a then predominantly white school. They 
were the only black males and wanted to form a group that would exemplify their 
unity on campus and after much deliberation, they decided it would be best to 
get the support of an organization which was already established. These nine men 
chose the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, and with the help of the Chi Omega and 
Upsilon Psi chapters, Chi Theta was founded. Chi Theta was the first black Greek 
organization at Florida State University and with each step, Omega blazed the 
trail for other black Greeks. The nine men from our chapter line called themselves 
the "Super Fine Nine" and they saw Chi Theta chartered on August 1 1970, and 
since then, have instilled Omegas ideals for all to follow. This chapter strives to 
perpetuate ideas of our founders by participating in Achievement Week, Social 
Action, Talent Hunt, Scholarship and other community projects. The members 
of Chi Theta have continued to spread Omegas influence in the community and 
on campus by following these ideals. Omega men have always been active in stu- 
dent government. The brothers have been elected to senate positions, as well as 
the president's Committee. We most importantly have taken a strong and active 
interest in black Student Union. Chi Theta was named National Undergraduate 
Chapter of the year for 2002, 2003, and 2004. Chi Theta will continue to do 
the utmost to exemplify our four cardinal principles, Manhood, Scholarship, 
Perseverance, and Uplift.

Phi Beta Sigma International Fraternity was founded January 9, 
1914 by Honorable A. Langston Taylor, Leonard F. Morse and Charles I. 
Brown on the campus or Howard University in Washington D.C. Founded 
on the motto, "Culture for Service and Service for Humanity" this fraternity is 
guided by its three principles: brotherhood, scholarship, and service. Phi Beta 
Sigma's fraternity colors are Royal Blue and Pure White, and they claim the 
white carnation. 

The Mu Epsilon chapter of Phi Beta Sigma was founded here at FSU 
on December 7, 1979 by Kenneth Colebrooke and Maurice Parrish. Since 
being here at FSU, the chapter engages in the community from Sleep-Out for 
the Homeless to rounding a diabetes awareness organization, Homer Thomas 
III — named in honor of a chapter member who succumbed to this disease. 
Mu Epsilon also has its Annual Ms. Phi Beta Sigma Pageant, which awards the 
winner a scholarship and the chance to compete for the national title. 

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity has a constitutional bond to its sister or- 
ganization, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. One of their Great Founders, Abram 
L. Taylor was directly responsible for Zeta Phi Betas inception. Notable mem- 
bers of the fraternity are Nnamdi Azikiwe, past President of Nigeria, Kwame 
Nkromah, past President of Ghana, George Washington Carver, who is the 
only member of the NPHC to be on a U.S coin and Emmitt Smith, the NFLs 
all-time leading rusher.

Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. was organizedon Novem- 
ber 12, 1922 in Indianapolis, Indiana by seven school teachers: Mary 
Lou Allison Little, Dorothy Hanley Whiteside, Vivian White Mar- 
bury, Nannie Mae Gahn Johnson, Hattie Mae Dulin Redford, Bes- 
sie M. Downey Martin and Cubena McClure. The group became an 
incorporated national collegiate sorority on December 30, 1929, when 
a charter was granted to the Alpha chapter at Butler University. 

The Epsilon Delta Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, 
Inc. dates from the Fall of 1972 when a colony of 10 young women 
was established at Florida State University. The colony originated from 
the Delta Psi Chapter, which was a metropolitan chapter. With the 
guidance of Soror Ruthine Tidwell, the colony grew and received its 
charter on December 4, 1973 with fifteen members. 

Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., including the Epsilon Del- 
ta chapter, continues to make a difference as they abide by the motto 
"Greater Service, Greater Progress."

heart of a SEMINOLE 

Allyson Martin 

Being a Florida State Seminole is something that has 
become indescribable to me. It started as a traditional 
feel one that was passed down to our University by the 
Seminole Tribe. A feeling of bravery, accomplishment, 
and the ability to be unconquered and unique was what 
layered the surface. What I've found over the years I have 
attended Florida State is something that will lie deep with- 
in me for the remainder of my years to come. If an out- 
sider were to ask me what it feels like to be a Florida State 
Seminole, this is what I'd reply: 

It's like the first day Tallahassee weather goes under 
one hundred degrees and you can walk to class without 
sweating. It is receiving a high score on your first test in a 
challenging class. It is the first time you step foot in DOAK 
Campbell stadium and see thousands of people lift their 
arm in glory to do the Chop! It is an indescribable feeling 
that overcomes you on your drive home for the holidays 
as you pass more Florida State tags than any other State 
school's. Suddenly, you find that your arm is half way out 
the window, doing the Chop at the car full of Gators in 
the left lane. It is finding that it is possible to meet new 
people everyday and to make new friends with whom 
you will always have a common bond. 

You have chosen to attend a University overflowing 
with pride, spirit and a uniqueness of its own. A univer- 
sity full of friendly faces, A place you can return to years 
later; your home away from home with those who have 
helped mold you into who you are. This place is Florida 
State University, and being a part of it means being able 
to encompass the ideals of those before us and merge 
them with our own to help us become our own individu- 
als. By believing we are brave, aiming towards our goals 
in anticipation, and standing fearless and proud amongst 
our peers, we stand unconquered and feel what it's like to 
be a Florida State Seminole.

Greek Idol 

The Phi Tau chapter of Alpha Epsilon Pi prides itself on being 
known as a gentleman's fraternity. Each semester AEPi rushes only the high- 
est quality of potential brothers in the hopes of making them a part of the 
fraternity and instilling into them the values and morals a brother of Alpha 
Epsilon Pi should live by: honesty, perseverance, faith, mutual helpfulness, 
and humility. 

The chapter is very active in the Greek and FSU communities, 
participating in many philanthropic and charitable activities. The chapter 
also works hard each year to put on and run its own philanthropy, Greek 
Idol. Although this is only its second year running, Greek Idol has grown 
to be one of the biggest and most successful Greek philanthropies on cam- 
pus. Participants from sororities compete to win a range of prizes and to 
help raise money for SADD. In 2002, as a result of hard work and a strong 
brotherhood, AEPi won first place in Homecoming and was the runner up 
lor Fraternity of the Year. 

The fraternity participates in all intramural sports and finished 
second in its division this year in flag football. The chapter thrives on its 
strength of brotherhood and tries to convey that notion throughout campus 
by being leaders academically and socially. AEPi consistently has one of the 
highest GPAs among the Greek organizations on campus and has the high- 
est national GPA of all fraternities. Through all of its accomplishments from 
hard work, a strong brotherhood and integrity, AEPi exemplifies FSU spirit 
and pride in everything it does.

mutable principles dedicated to recognizing true merit wherever it is 
round, ATO is the oldest continuous fraternity on the FSU campus with 
more than 1 20 active members. 

Alpha Tau Omegas claim "Play Like a Champion, Party Like a 
Rock Star" as their motto. They're annual contenders for the campus In- 
tramural Championship and consistently win individual sports. ATOs 
enjoy a lull social calendar including the annual White Tea Rose For- 
mal, Valhalla, Unga Gunga Balunga, football block parties, Hayride and 
dozens of socials with FSU's finest sororities. Bound by the ATO Creed, 
they hold themselves to high standards and are dedicated to serving 
the university and local community. The ATO men take great pride in 
starting traditions, such as Dance Marathon, which brings in hundreds 
of thousands of dollars each year for local charities. ATO is 'America's 
Leadership Development Fraternity," committed to continuing the tra- 
dition and legacy of more than 1,600 alumni.

The Delta Phi chapter of Delta Tau Delta is currently wrapping up 
her 47th year as an active member of the Florida State Greek System. Through 
this time period the faces have changed, the shelters have changed, and size 
has changed. Through all of these changes one thing has always remained the 
same with the members. In order to be a member of the Delta Phi chapter 
you must meet the standards of a Delt Gentlemen: a man who adheres and 
upholds the morals of the chapter. A man who knows how to treat a woman 
correctly and stands up when she enters the room. A Delt Gentlemen is a man 
who conducts himself responsibly and there are 110 of them in the chapter 
right now. 

This past year has been a very interesting one for the chapter. With 
the absence of a house for this entire year the fraternity has undergone its highs 
and lows. We initiated 46 new men in the fall, our biggest pledge class ever. 
We have been very active around campus this year as well. We have domi- 
nated in intramurals winning multiple fraternity championships and even an 
all campus championship. We have also been very active in philanthropies as 
well; in fact we won the Tridelt Field Day this year. We are currently finish- 
ing up plans for a brand new philanthropy new fall that we are really excited 

As well as being excited about our new philanthropy next fall we 
are really looking forward to the house reopening on August 1st. With the 
reopening of the refurbished house and a solid Fall '06 pledge class we are 
anxiously anticipating next year.

Once a year you may have seen a house surrounded by a huge wooden 
fort. This would be the work of the men in Kappa Alpha. Founded in 1865 at 
Washington and Lee University, these men have captured the attention of the 
entire campus. This year the fraternity has been awarded 1st place in homecom- 
ing, 2nd at Dance Marathon, and 2nd at the Greek Week Activities. Besides re- 
ceiving high rankings, KA has been involved in other student organizations and 
activities. Members participate with intramurals, philanthropies, community 
projects, adopt-a-street, government campaign involvement, SGA, and Insight. 
They even have a member, Ryan Powers, on the Student Senate. 

Kappa Alphas symbol is the Knight's Shield Displaying the Encircled 
Cross. Their colors are crimson and gold and they live by their motto of Dieu Et 
Les Danes. Every Greek organization has a philanthropy and theirs is the Mus- 
cular Distrophy Association. Herbert Hoover and Von Fischman (the drummer 
of the band Phish) are both members of the Kappa Alpha brotherhood. 

One of the most recognized events KA hosts is its Formal. The Old 
South formal is a weeklong event dedicated to the days of the old south. The 
brothers or KA parade around campus on foot or by horseback picking up their 
selected southern belles from their sorority house. It all ends in Amelia Island, 
FL with a traditional Old South Ball decorated with southern style and cheer. 
What is best is that everyone attending the ball is wearing traditional southern 
attire. Another event is the Convivium Formal. It is dedicated to the birth and 
life achievements of one the greatest respected generals of all time, Robert E. 
Lee of Old Virginia.

The Kappa Sigma Fraternity at FSU has done well in the past year. 
The fraternity was in the Top 5 for fall 2005 recruiting classes for Kappa 

They have been implementing a more successful scholarship pro- 
gram that will help to ensure both individuals and the fraternity as a whole 
will rise in the GPA standings. Their annual philanthropy Margaritaville 
Madness, which raises money for the Save the Manatees foundation, was un- 
fortunately postponed this year, but will be back in action next fall. This year 
our greatest accomplishments were not those that can be found on paper, but 
rather the bond that has grown between the members of this chapter and the 
outlook to strive for better things. 

This year they have been able to up attendance at all our events in- 
cluding Dance Marathon, Homecoming, philanthropies, socials, and broth- 
erhood events. With this new drive they are expected great things in the 
upcoming year including the addition of a new philanthropy added to our 
events. Kappa Sigma at FSU is making great steps in the right direction 
and will continue to proceed on this path. The fraternity is proud of the ac- 
complishments that have been made over the past year and look forward to 
adding more in the coming year.

The Phi Delta Theta Fraternity was founded upon three cardinal 
principles that still hold true today: friendship, sound learning and moral 

In its fifty-four years on campus, Phi Delta Theta has excelled in all 
aspects of campus life. First and foremost, Phi Delts are scholars and always 
strive for academic excellence. The Chapter also excels at athletics, having 
won intramurals 21 out of the last 55 years. 

Phi Delts are involved and are leaders in many campus organiza- 
tions and clubs from the Student Government Association to the Intrafrater- 
nity Council. Phi Delt at Florida State has recently been awarded the Har- 
vard Trophy, naming us the best Phi Delt chapter in the nation. Phi Delt 
is also actively involved in philanthropic work as the annual bedraces raise 
money for Lou Gehrig's Disease and Phi Delta Theta along with Delta Delta 
Delta and Alpha Chi Omega, raised the most money for Dance Marathon in 
the history of the event. 

This year as Phi Delta Theta completes their new house, the tradi- 
tion of excellence they have held since 1951 continues to stand true.

The Delta Lambda chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha here at FSU prides itself on 
success. A Pike is a leader, an athlete, a scholar and most importantly, a gentleman. 

Since returning to FSU in 2000, they have worked hard to exemplify these 
four cornerstones. Pi Kappa Alpha's awards include Fraternity of the Year three times, 
the Overall Intramural Championship three years running, breaking the record for the 
largest point margin in FSU history, and re-breaking that same record the following year. 
They have also been awarded the Smythe Award, an award is given out to the top 14 Pike 
Chapters in the nation, for the fourth year in a row. 

Pike has also been home to some of the campus' most recognizable leaders. 
Chad Reeves is the newly appointed Student Body Vice President, following in the foot- 
steps of former Senate President ProTempor, Sean Drake, Student Body Treasurer, Ozzy 
Cuan, and Student Body President, Patrick Sullivan. Brother Balazs Khoor is the Presi- 
dent of the Pre-Law Society, and Tom Pitts is the President/Creator of the new Pre-Med 
Six ietv. 

Varsity athletics is another staple of the chapter, and they currently have more 
varsity athletes than all the other fraternities combined. They range from DJ Norris and 
Joe Surratt, two starters on the football team to Pete Crane, captain of the diving team. A 
review of their accomplishments from this past year include: Fourth consecutive Smythe 
Award, third Intramural Championship in a row, all-fraternity soccer champions, all- 
campus flag football champions, garnet division basketball champions, initiating the 
largest fall pledge class in our history and a community service trip to Mississippi for 
Katrina relief efforts with nearly fifty Pikes. 

In the future, they look forward to more community service opportunities and 
continuing a tradition of excellence in recruitment, athletics, and leadership; all areas 
that have made the chapter a nationally recognized organization.

Pi Lambda Phi was founded in 1895 at the prestigious Yale Uni- 
versity. The brothers have worked very hard to participate within campus 
by joining scalp hunters, student senate, SGA, and other student organiza- 
tions. With the motto "Not for years, but a lifetime" it's easy to see how 
this is a true brotherhood. 

Every spring since 1997 Pi Lam has hosted the annual Wild at 
Heart Line Dance Philanthropy benefiting the American Heart Associa- 
tion. This event has become very popular and celebrated among the Greek 
community, especially with the National Panhellenic Conference sorori- 
ties. Each sorority fields a team of 8-12 dancers and they perform a five- 
minute dance routine with popular music that showcases their talent. This 
year Chi Omega won first place for line dance 2006. Pi Lam also likes to 
participate in other Greek philanthropies such as Delta Gamma's Anchor- 
splash where they won 2nd place. 

Pi Lambda Phi not only knows how to raise money for charities, 
but to have a good time. Every year they throw a "party bus" date func- 
tion. Each brother brings a date where they ride around Tallahassee in style 
dressed as gangsters. The event has become popular over the years and is 
starting to become a mainstay in the Pi Lam tradition.

Florida State community with outstanding academics and service for over 
fifty years. With a strong dedication to commitment to both Florida State 
University and the Tallahassee community, Sigma Chi has been locally and 
nationally recognized, making this chapter one of the most revered and 
influential on campus. Recognized throughout the country, Sigma Chi at 
Florida State received its seventh significant chapter award within the last 
eight years. 

The much respected and distinguished reputation of Sigma Chi 
has given its brothers the opportunity to socialize with the very best Florida 
State has to offer, but beyond all this and more importantly, Sigma Chi 
given its brothers the opportunity to graduate with something much more 
rewarding and concrete: friendship.

Sigma Nu Fraternity has been dedicated to building a strong 
chapter at Florida State University since April 22, 1950. The Zeta Zeta 
chapter continues to build on the founding principles of love, truth and 
honor. Over the past year, Sigma Nu has had many accomplishments. 
In the fall, Sigma Nu won the overall Homecoming competition while 
being partnered with Alpha Delta Pi. In the spring, Sigma Nu took 
home the Gold Division of Dance Marathon paired with Chi Omega. 

Sigma Nu held the 2nd annual "Ballin' for Barrett" basketball 
tournament in November. The tournament is set up in honor of brother 
Barrett Burchak who passed away on October 4, 2004. It is a 5-on- 
5 tournament with all donations being made to the Barrett Burchak 
scholarship foundation. 

Brothers in Sigma Nu are involved in many other campus or- 
ganizations. Some include Order of Omega, Air Force ROTC, Orienta- 
tion Leaders, Dance Marathon Overall Committee and many others. 

The social functions held this year were all very success- 
ful. Events in the fall included a River Daze tubing trip, the Mexican 
themed Sigma Nuevo and their annual Christmas Party. The highlight 
was their Formal which took place over a November weekend in Savan- 
nah, Georgia. 

The spring was also very busy socially for Sigma Nu. Hayride, 
a semi-formal and their 5th annual "Get Nud" field party all were great

The Florida Epsilon chapter of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity is 
proud to boast of yet another successful year. After their award-winning phi- 
lanthropy last year, charity has only become an even greater source of motiva- 
tion as well as a major theme. Sigma Phi Epsilon continues to exemplify this 
not only through its brotherhood, but the university too. 

The Sig Eps, along with the ladies of Alpha Delta Pi, brought home 
third place in this year's Dance Marathon and have already started planning 
how they will make the next one even better. Their athletics posted an incred- 
ible improvement in intramural sports, and the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity 
is proudly the home to a number of Florida State's top athletic programs. 

Sigma Phi Epsilon brothers remain active in the student govern- 
ment and kept their involvement in the school community at an all time 
high. The most valued quality of the Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter remains at 
the basis of its structure and importance of brotherhood. The strength and 
numbers of the Sigma Phi Epsilon brotherhood proudly extends all of its 
ideals and virtues through a lifelong membership, which leaves a beneficial 
legacy that goes out to alumni but also to prospective members.

The Epsilon Deuteron Chapter of Tau Epsilon Phi was initially installed at Florida State Uni- 
versity on the eighth day of May, 1954 with a chapter comprised of eleven charter members. From their 
humble roots, the brothers have always pursued excellence. 

The brotherhood's commitment to leadership has been exemplified in the classroom, on the 
athletic field, in campus politics and within the community. The gentlemen worked hard this year to 
garner the litany of accolades they now have under their belt. 

Academic distinction is routine for these gentleman. TEP is represented in the Deans List, 
FSU Honors program and a myriad of academic and leadership honoraries and fraternities throughout 
the University. In addition to ranking top 5 in the Garnet intramural division, brothers competed for 
FSU on varsity teams and as members of club sports teams. 

Members of the fraternity occupied seats on the Inter-Fraternity Council Executive Board, 
SGA Student Senate and Dance Marathon Overall Committee among many others. 

Other popular organizations brothers are involved with include Student Alumni Association, 
Seminole Student Boosters and Scalphunters. 

TEPs strive to be true to the ideal of service by giving unselfishly that which they have to of- 
fer, by contributing countless hours of service to the community as a group, as well as individually. "Ihey 
hosted two philanthropic events this year: the sorority golf tournament named "Caddyshack" in the fall 
and "Sorority Sing", a vocal competition in the spring, both of which benefited the American Leukemia 

But "all work and no play" does not constitute the life of a TEP. The gentlemen boasted an 
extensive calendar of date functions, socials and crushes this year. From football tailgates to local nightlife, 
the only thing that exceeds the brothers' pursuit of excellence on campus is their penchant for partying. In 
their creed, the brothers declare, "to practice each day ftiendship, chivalry and service, thus keeping true 
to these, the three ideals of the founders of the fraternity." 

Brotherhood is what sets Tau Epsilon Phi apart from the rest. Their camaraderie and dedica- 
tion to each other is unmatched. Above all, the life-long friendships forged are the paramount achieve- 
ment that the ttaternity values most and will treasure for eternity.

Tau Kappa Epsilon is proud to be the world's largest fraternity with 
over 280 chapters and 240,000 men initiated. Also, this number boasts dis- 
tinguished alumni including President Ronald Reagan, hotel mogul Conrad 
Hilton and rock legend Elvis Presley. 

At Florida State University, TKE is highly involved on campus so- 
cially, academically and athletically, through numerous social events with 
FSU's sororities, intramural athletics and Student Government. "The choice 
to belong, the challenge to become" is the brotherhoods motto and since 
its founding at FSU in 1968, many quality men have chosen to meet that 
challenge and call TKE home. 

Rechartered in the fall of 2003 by 12 men, TKE at FSU has grown 
nearly 10 times in strength. Size, strong brotherhood and motivation make 
Tau Kappa Epsilon's future at Florida State a promising one.

Theta Chi Fraternity was one of the original seven fraternities 
to come to Florida State University and was installed as the Gamma Rho 
Chapter on March 5, 1949. After re-colonization in Fall 2004, Gamma 
Rho has returned to FSU and was re-chartered on March 25, 2006. 

The Men of Theta Chi are representative of their ideals: truth, 
temperance, and tolerance, and exemplify what it is to be a true gentle- 
men. Its members represent a wide range of individuals, each streaming 
from vastly differing backgrounds and cultures but uniting within the val- 
ues and traditions of Theta Chi. 

Theta Chi participates heavily in Greek and university philan- 
thropies, earning 2nd place in Dance Marathon in February 2006 with 
their partners from Gamma Phi Beta, Theta Nu Xi and Pi Kappa Alpha. 
The Stadium Tunnel has been adopted by Theta Chi and is being trans- 
formed into a safer passageway. 

Theta Chi received the highest grade point average amongst the 
Interfraternity Council with a 3.27 cumulative GPA for Fall 2005, while 
being deeply involved in multiple organizations on campus. 

Theta Chi is rooted in the idea of brotherhood and utilizing its 
history and traditions to better shape each individual member and the 
university as a whole. Their deepest aspirations are to do all in their power 
to perpetuate Theta Chis ideals, thereby serving their God, their country 
and their fellow man.

Hosting nearly 40,000 students, the campus of Florida State Uni- 
versity can be quite intimidating to an incoming freshman or a new 
student. Whether wanting to branch out from a familiar group of friends 
or longing for an involvement on campus, Greek Life provides these 
among other opportunities for every kind of Nole. Comprised of four di- 
verse councils, Greek Life at Florida State not only encourages activity 
and leadership on campus, but it also opens many doors of friendships, 
memories, and opportunities that will last for a lifetime. 

Opening these doors are the four councils that embody Greek Life 
on Florida State's campus: The Interfraternity Council (IFC), a council 
of men's fraternities; The College Panhellenic Council (CPC), a council 
of women's fraternities; The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), a 
council of men's and women's fraternities; and the Multicultural Greek 
Council (MGC), a multicultural and culturally based council. Each divi- 
sion creates numerous ways of involvement for students, but most of 
all, they each develop their own branch of brotherhood and sisterhood 
to create the foundation of all Greek Life at Florida State. 

A member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority and graduating 
senior, Jennifer Hoskins, recalls her first impressions of Greek Life at Flori- 
da State. "Everyone comes in with an unstable environment to college, 
and within an organization of Greek Life you are instantly provided with 
opportunities, leadership positions, and friendships. Not only that, but 
Greek Life also helps to create a smooth adjustment for college life." 

Although being Greek has many positive aspects, the most impor- 
tant of these is the unity throughout a single organization. Accepting 
new members each semester, houses on this campus pride themselves 
on extending their brotherhood or sisterhood to future leaders and new 
brothers or sisters. While striving to accept and appreciate all members 
of an organization, houses embrace all differences, and unite on com- 
mon values to achieve this unity and friendship. Throughout this experi- 
ence, students turn into brothers and sisters, and strangers emerge as 
lifelong friends. 

Ranging from small tasks, such as recommending a professor, to 
larger circumstances, such as having a confidant to help in hardships, 
brothers and sisters in Greek organizations are not just fellow group 
members, but friends that care. Brotherhood and sisterhood means 
more than just simply wearing the same letters on a t-shirt. It truly con- 
nects someone with other students of similar interests, and challenges 
and encourages them to become a better person and a more confi- 
dant leader. 

No matter what the letters may be, it is truly the bonds of sister- 
hood and brotherhood that make Greek Life on this campus amazing. 
Within each house, the bonds keep growing as individual Greek mem- 
bers work together every day to not only strengthen their own organi- 
zation, but Greek Life on Florida State's campus as a whole.

In the Spring of 2000, Maves Rariola and Rizcion Dagani worked with great 
nbition to establish an Asian-American Interest Sorority on the campus of The Florida 
tate University. They felt that FSU, with its growing Asian population, needed an or- 
inization that promoted leadership, timeless sisterhood, community service and Asian 
vareness. On February 19, 2001, eleven women became the FSU aKDPhi Charter 
ilass. On April 21, 2001, FSU became the newest aKDPhi colony - the thirtieth chapter 
f alpha Kappa Delta Phi, Inc. Each of the young women pledged to work hard to break 
ereotypes, build bonds with other Greek organizations, and to pass on the teachings and 
dues of the sorority. 

Not only was aKDPhi the first Asian-American Interest Sorority on campus, but 
ley also became the first Asian-Greeks in the state of Florida. We have also accomplished 
lot on our campus, especially being recognized as one of the top leaders on campus for 
ur philanthropy, breast cancer awareness for the Susan G. Komen foundation. aKDPhi 
oes not only reach out internally among our own chapters, but reach out externally, 
etworking not only within our council but to other councils as well. We thrive on pro- 
toting Asian Awareness on the FSU campus, considering our Asian population is very 
>w. In order to promote cultural awareness, we like to hold cultural workshops and per- 
>rmances that represent our many different cultures. FSU aKDPhi not only represents 
>r our own sorority, but also shows what The Florida State University has to offer and 
lat is the love for the Seminoles.

On April 1 1, 1997, a new vision of sisterhood was established 
when Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority was founded at UNC Chapel 
Hill. Theta Nu Xi is the first multicultural sorority in the southeastern 
United States and the only sorority founded on the basis or multicultural- 
ism on Florida State campus. The lambda chapter of Theta Nu Xi Multi- 
cultural Sorority Inc. was established on July 28, 2001 at FSU. These ex- 
quisite ladies in lavender, Carolina blue, and black have won the Presidents 
Cup Award from 2002-2004. They have also maintained the highest GPA 
from 2002-2005. 

The members of Theta Nu Xi strive to exemplify the five tenets of 
sisterhood, scholarship, service, leadership, and multiculturalism. The mis- 
sion of this extraordinary organization is to promote leadership, multicul- 
turalism, and self-improvement through academic excellence, involvement 
in and service to the campus and community as well as being living exam- 
ples of sisterhood across different races, cultures, religions, backgrounds, 
and lifestyles.

The Seminole Student Boosters, founded by Kelly Alvarez in 2005, ad- 
ministrated by Brian Stevens in 2006, are filling stands at FSU games, covering 
students in Seminole apparel, dealing out licence plates, and networKing 
businesses with the student body. 

Boasting 800 active members, it is the largest student-run organiza- 
tion on campus. Their contribution to Seminole spirit rides upon a combi- 
nation of a point system ( for the point 
breakdown) and athletic awareness. The website is home to regular event 
updates ranging from basketball to swim meets. 

Events like swim and track meets as well as tennis matches that typi- 
cally aren't as well attended as other athletics have experienced substan- 
cial turnout by Student Boosters. Baseball, basketball, and football games 
that have strong attendance host more garnet Nole Zone shirted students 
that take over huge blocks (300 thick at Bobby Bowden Stadium). 

"Student Boosters was conceived 2 years ago with a dream to in- 
crease attendance at all major sporting events. As of today we have over 
800 active members, something we could have only dreamed of after such 
a short period of time. Our goal as an organization is to have two thousand 
members by the end of this year and four thousand members by the end of 
2008. This is a feasible goal since Student Boosters has become more then 
just a spirit oriented group, we are a way for current student boosters to 
network with alumni through Champions Forum, and our proudest accom- 
plishment of starting a School Pep Rally each year before the first football 
game;' said President Brian Stevens.

They're known most around campus for painting the many 
faces of Seminole fans, but the skills of the Lady Spirithunters are 
not limited to a brush and some face paint. These ladies work 
hard to boost Seminole spirit, help out around the community and 
build a relationship with the students of Florida State. Every year 
only a select number of ladies at FSU are chosen to become part 
of the Lady Spirit Hunters. But, what exactly does it take to be a 
Lady Spirithunter? "We look for a well rounded and spirited FSU 
woman," said President Christina Quintana. 

Equivalent to their immense Seminole pride, is the ladies 
work ethic. In addition to painting faces at a number of sporting 
and special events, the Lady Spirithunters are involved in numer- 
ous charities: The American Cancer Society, Children's Miracle 
Network, Camp Boggy Creek, and the local organization, Keep 
Tallahassee Beautiful, are just a few. The ladies also participate in 
homecoming every year and this year won the Homecoming ban- 
ner and were nominated for Best Organization of the Year. 

In addition to their hard work, the Lady Spirithunters take 
the time to have fun. The group hosts socials, takes part in intra- 
mural sports, and attends one away game every year. The group 
has no limit to what they can do. Their involvement with FSU and 
the community make thpem a true asset to the university.

Uniting; the Past with it's Future 

O Kristin Mestre 

Founded in 1979, The Student Alumni Association is one of the 
most committed organizations at Florida State, working to unite FSU's 
past with its future. 

SAA hosts several events on, as well as off campus throughout 
the year, The SAA serve as student representatives for all University Re- 
lations events to include hosting the President's Box for all home foot- 
ball games and partaking in the President's Ice Cream Social on Landis 
Green. They work closely with campus and the community every fall, 
organizing and planning the annual Homecoming Parade. Respon- 
sible for coordinating the Chief and Princess elections, the Homecom- 
ing Court halftime presentation, and hosting the Seminole Indian Tribe 
representatives, SAA strive to exemplify spirit and uphold the traditions 
of the Garnet and Gold. 

"The Student Alumni Association combines the best parts of FSU 
into one well-rounded experience; the students, the alumni and the 
timeless traditions. It is more than an organization, but a passionate 
group of students - a family - who work closely to not only build, but 
maintain the bridge between students and FSU alumni," President Kris- 
tin Macak summarizes her sentiment and experiences with SAA. 

Another annual undertaking of the SAA is working with the Unit- 
ed Way and Hancock Bank to coordinate Downtown Get-Down. In 
2005, SAA defeated seventy competing universities in the southeast 
by winning the Program of the Year Award at the Annual District 
Conference in Greensborough, North Carolina for its Homecoming en- 
deavors. As its motto states, SAA strives, "with pride in our Alma Ma- 
ter, the FSU Student Alumni Association unites/TNtfrltla State University's 
past with its future." ^ I J * «^- .

national officers are elected, and the Constitution is amended. 

Circle K International is a service organization above any- 
thing else. The members have proven to be dedicated in im- 
proving their schools and communities. Circle K also has a focus

leading preventable cause of mental retardation. Circle K clubs 
have raised more than $523,000. Although the organization has 
made a huge effort to raise funds and has reached $41 million,

Since its formation in the fall of 2001, Insight has been 
a continued success, The party has been victorious in each 
election in which it has participated since its first election 
in the spring of 2002, From the start, the focus of the party 
was the students of FSU, Thus, Insight was formed from an 
extremely diverse group of individuals, which would serve to 
represent all of the students at the university, To keep their 
foundation of diversity, all students are encouraged to get 

The party holds the motto "first we listen, then we 
lead," which they indeed do by working to improve the life 
of the students. By meeting with students, the members of 
Insight are able to learn their concerns. From this, they cre- 
ate their platform. Although the platform may be different 
each semester, the intention is always to improve quality of 
life for students. 

Past goals have included working to save Bright Fu- 
tures, eliminating Suntrust ATM fees, and starting the News- 
paper Readership Program. Some of the focuses for this fall 
are lowering textbook prices and improving the SAFE bus 
program. No matter what issues may_arise for students, In- 
sight will be up to the challenge.

The Black Student Union offers students a form of iden- 
tity, a social life, and is the official voice on issues concerning 
black students. 

Founded in 1968, BSU seeks to develop unity among 
the black students so that in their strong numbers, they can 
express concerns with problems faced on campus. The Black 
Student Union attempts to create awareness to the Univer- 
sity community about issues relating to black culture through 
its sponsorship and involvement in programs on campus. By 
assuming this role, the Black Student Union plans and partici- 
pates in political and academic activities in hopes to bring 
out cultural awareness. One of the annual events BSU hosts 
is the Bobby E. Leach Ball that takes place in December in 
honor of Mr. Bobby E. Leach, former Vice-President of Student 
Affairs, who was the highest ranking black faculty member in 
Florida State University's history. He, in part, made a large con- 
tribution to the well-being of black students on Florida State's 

Offering community service is one of the ways The Black 
Student Union gives back to the community through giving up 
their time to help out at places like Salvation Army, the Refuge 
House, and the Tandem Nursing Home, as well as mentoring 
to younger students at the Boys and Girls Club. Although BSU 
members are predominantly black, anyone and everyone is 
encouraged to join.

Amid all of the many student organizations at FSU, the Col- 
lege Democrats stand to promote, "progressive thought and ae 
tion both within and outside of the FSU campus," The organization 
actively seeks new members and aims to not only to get their 
message out around campus but throughout the community as 

In addition to holding weekly meetings, the group hosts 
panel discussions, guest speakers, seminars and social events. Be- 
ing a non-election year, an important task and main focus of the 
organization was keeping up support and interest in the group. 
Throughout the year, the organization features a number of speak- 
ers and is a sponsor of many special events aimed at educating 
FSU students. Among those featured this year were Leon County 
commissioner Andrew Gilliam, who spoke to students regarding 
the proposed coal plant, Senator Bill Nelson, who gave a speech 
about his take on politics, and a informational session titled "Rob- 
erts Revealed" which included Stephanie Grutman, the executive 
director of Planned Parenthood of Florida. 

Aside from politics, the group is involved with the charitable 
housing organization Habitat for Humanity and were nominated 
for the award of 'Chapter of the Year' The college democrats not 
only work to, but succeeded in making a difference at FSU.

"Collective knowledge, collective effort, and collective 
strength," is The Progressive Black Men Inc's motto. In 1989 the 
Florida State Chapter was founded in order to destroy the nega- 
tive images of African American males in the media. The Progres- 
sive Black Men focus on upholding morals, being sophisticated, 
and performing good deeds. They aim to be positive role models 
for African American males in the community and society as a 

One of the men's main concentrations is to reach out and 
help the needy and disadvantaged children and to make their 
lives better. To be one of the most active organizations on cam- 
pus, these men volunteer at Mims and Riley Elementary Schools, 
the Florida State Minority Activity Program, and the Springfield 
Boys and Girls Club. The group also participates in Adopt-A-High- 
school, which allows the Progressive Black Men to mentor and 
educate future leaders. 

The Progressive Black Men of Florida State share a strong 
bond and brotherhood. Year after year they continue to help in 
the Tallahassee community.

The Marching Chiefs is the largest collegiate marching 
band in the world with membership comprised from almost every 
academic department within the University. The marching band 
is approximately 400 students that perform at all home football 
games and select away games as well as the annual post-season 
bowl game. Recognized as the "band that never lost a halftime" 
by Sports Illustrated, the Chiefs have performed for audiences at 
the International Trade Fair in Damascus and for the World Football 
League in London. In addition, the Chiefs are a central feature of 
the annual Prism Concert, which features the complete spectrum 
of band activities at FSU. 

Within the Marching Chiefs is the Big 8 Drumline. This talent- 
ed and entertaining ensemble plays within the band, but some- 
times will play by themselves and have their audience dancing to 
their rhythmic beats. The Big 8 after home games and at Tallahas- 
see's Downtown Get Down in the streets. 

Baton twirlers and the flag team also are part of the half- 
time shows. Some batons are even thrown into the air, on fire, and 
caught while the twirler drops into a perfect split. As many times as 
they see it, students are mesmerized by the agility and precision of 
the flags and batons at FSU's spectacular halftime show. 

Students who wish to enroll audition by attending a pre- 
season training session held before classes begin. Though being a 
music major it isn't required to participate in the band, everyone is 
asked to play an audition for the purpose of placement.

The FSU Hockey team started its sixth season in its 
young program under Captain Ross Kravetz and Coach 
Jamie Haskell. The Seminole's finished third in the Memorial 
Health Hockey Classic for the second year in a row. The FSU 
goaltender Jason Goodwin came out strong earning him all 
tournament honors for his outstanding play against the Uni- 
versity of Florida in front of a crowd of 4000. 

The Seminole Ice Hockey Club was first established in 
the 1997-98 season and has been run by students, mostly 
the players that are on the team. Due to loss of ice in the 
Leon County Civic Center, the Seminoles have had to relo- 
cate their home games to the RDV Center in Orlando where 
they have been playing all their home games since. 

The team has been on full charge taking the season 
series against the Gators with scores of 5-2, 7-4 and 6-0. 
The Seminoles have a bright future ahead of them with Greg 
Kirchenbaum as the only senior on the roster. The young tal- 
ented players are sure to take the experience from this sea- 
son into the next with high expectations.

The Baptist Collegiate Ministry at Florida State University has one main vision- 
— students reach students and impact the world. The vision of Baptist Collegiate 
Ministries at FSU is to "create an environment for life" in which students, faculty, 
and staff come to know Jesus Christ, grow in a dynamic, personal relationship with 
Him, and become all He created and intended them to be in order to go "into all 
the world making disciples of all nations." The Baptist Collegiate Ministry's purpose 
is not only to reach the lost, but to also teach the Truth of God's Word, as well as 
equip students, faculty and staff for works of service so that the body of Christ 
may be built up. 

The BCM kicks their year off in August with Survival!. They also have an ongo- 
ing ministry to freshmen through "Fish Schools". Other opportunities that allow pro- 
spective members to be involved are the Freshmen Campout, Freshmen Field Day, 
Progressive Dinner to six local churches in one night and so much more. 

The Baptist Collegiate Ministry is open to those looking for a Bible study, those 
looking for a way to use their spiritual gifts, individuals who want to go on a Spring 
Break mission trip or just those people who want to met new friends and hang out. 
Florida State's BCM has many different ways for you to get involved. Students on 
the BCM Leadership Team coordinate each of its ministries. Some of the ministries 
that the BCM has to offer are Encounter, Bible studies, Fish Schools/Freshmen Minis- 
try, Campus Outreach, Greek B.A.S.I.C. (Brothers and Sisters In Christ) and commu- 
nity missions which help out the needy people in Tallahassee and the surrounding 

ties. I

Reviving the Renegade after a ten year

a break from their strenuous yearbook

Reviving the FSU tradition, the Renegade yearbook is a 336 page, full color 

publication. This book is to be filled with the ideas, fashions, memories, pictures and 
traditions surrounding the 2005-2006 school year. 

With four deadlines spread out over the course of fall and spring semesters; 
a dedicated staff of five members and editors, an amazing advisor, and the guid- 
ance of Student Affairs made production a complicated mix of labor, learning and 

The hardest part of this adventure was ?finding the dedicated staff mem- 
bers who stuck it out for the entirety of the book. Finding out the people you can 
count on to get their assignments in by deadline, and those who let you down? Jes- 
sica Travis, Student Life and People Section Editor, expresses about her frustrations 
with the process. 

After a failed attempt to bring back the tradition of a yearbook last year 
(due to the lack of dedicated staff members), another push for the publication came. 
An abundance of volunteers and motivation came in 2005 where the yearbook was 
offered as a 3 credited hour course and provided hands on experience, volunteer 
hours and just a load of fun. "To be on the staff that created the first Florida State 
yearbook in ten years is an honor, because we are, hopefully setting it on course for 
many years to come."Marietta Palgutt, Editor-in-Chief, 

To paraphrase Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club and a main contribu- 
tor to the recent jump in college-aged leisure reading, change is the only constant. 
A yearbook embraces and rejects this idea, as it commits all the tangibles (i.e. war 
chants, union bazaars, roaring construction equipment) and the intangibles (i.e. 
crushes, revelations, accomplishments) of an entire year to j^pe^ Think about FSU 
from "05-06, and smile. Yearbooks appreciate nostal$

The Catholic Student Union has enjoyed being involved in the FSU community over the 
last several years. This organization has allowed over 200 students to feel at home during a time 
that can be a difficult adjustment for any college student. 

The Catholic Student Union holds "Spirit Nights" every Wednesday at 8pm. This is time 
for students to come and learn more about their Catholic faith, as they go over a new topic 
each week that effects students on a daily basis. Also, CSU holds one retreat a semester, where 
200 students take a weekend out of their busy schedule to focus on their relationship with 

In order to allow students to feel confortable within the organization, CSU has a ice 
cream social every week after the 6pm student mass as an opportunity for students to build 
friendships. After the ice cream social all students are invited to out to dinner with CSU, as an- 
other fun chance to meet to new people. CSU also sits together as in block seating at all FSU 
football games to ensure that new students are not left sitting by themselves at the game and 
as another opportunity for them to feel apart of the FSU community. 

CSU is also very involved in the community. CSU has a service committee who went to 
Mississippi this past semester to help the Hurricane Katrina victims. This spring break, the commit- 
tee will be going to New Orleans to help the Hurrican Katrina victims there as well. 

The Catholic Student Union also is very involved in the pro-life movement. Every year 
they send about 55 student to the March for Life in Washington, DC; and each fall semester 
have a pro-life speaker come on campus. 

However, CSU takes a lot of joy in being involved in the FSU community. They are ac- 
tive in the FSU intramurals for those students who are interested in sports. The Catholic Student 
has also become well know for their involvement in FSU's Homecoming competition. For the last 
three years, they have won first place overall in the Tomahawk division. Moreover they have 
won first in almost every EVENT that homecoming has put on for the last 3 years. 

Also, this past fall, CSU was awarded by the Black Student Union, "Most Outstanding 
Achievement" award for best non-BSU organization. This award was presented to CSU at the

Florida State University's PreLaw Society, a registered student organization, 
offers membership to students of all majors. The Society's goal is to "encourage stu- 
dents to successfully enter the legal profession." Benefits of becoming a member are 
numerous and include insight into law school, help with the admissions process and 
information about the legal profession. 

Members of the PreLaw Society are able to participate in mock trials (participa- 
tion is based on auditions) and assist in law-related community outreach. One of the 
PreLaw Society's notable events is "Speaker Series." This semester long series offers 
lectures from law professionals and the College of Law faculty. Members are also en- 
couraged to take advantage of the Society's "Professional Development Program" 
which aids students in job interviews, resume building and other areas related to the 
job search. 

Two additional programs offered by the Society include peer counseling and 
legal education. 

Peer Advising, a student run program, provides advice to students on the LSAT, 
the law school and the admissions process. All peer advisors have been highly trained 
through Florida State University's College of Law's Ambassador Training Program. 

The Legal Education Program is an outreach program that encourages el- 
ementary school students to understand and obey the law. Mock trials often occur 
through this program. 

Depending on a student's desire of involvement, a student can be a "gen- 
eral member" or an "inducted member." General members are required only to pay 
dues each semester. Inducted members are involved on a committee, attend half 
of social functions and complete five philanthropy hours. Inducted members receive 
discounts on LSAT preparation courses along with other benefits. The Society's web- 
site states along with the above benefits, "The Florida State PreLaw Society aims 
to raise the caliber of students seeding admission to law school from Florida State

As P. Diddy has said in the past, "vote or die." Attracting 
voters for the election, Voice Party Superheroes Blake 
Partridge and Rob Baker gain the attention of students 
when campaigning in the Union on Market Wednesdays. 

Lindsay Potvin 

"Florida State students are being heard and understood in a new way now that they have 
found their voice in the Voice Party." 

Imagine it is the first Tuesday in November, Election Day, and you walk eagerly to the polls to 
cast your vote and make your voice heard in your government. You gaze down at your ballot and realize 
that there is only one choice for every elected position. You realize that there is only one opinion repre- 
sented on the ballot, and it is not yours. Unfortunately, this is the scene that, up until the spring semester 
of the 2004-2005 academic year, was a reality for some students at Florida State. 

This scenario was the driving force behind the creation of the Voice Party. Their purpose was to 
give underrepresented students a voice in their governing body. With a small contingent of students, the 
Voice Party started slowly; however, they have won seats in the Student Senate since their first eligible 
election. Among them was Tim Hooper, who has run for elected positions and is now a Student Senator. 
His reason for involvement in the Voice Party mirrors the Party's reason for inception: "I'm involved with 
Student Government because it presents an amazing opportunity to serve the university and the student 
body as well as to take a proactive stance on the direction FSU will go in the future." 

With the students in mind, the founders of the Voice Party are taking politics to a new level of 
democracy by allowing the students to decide together who should run for the elected positions. This 
allows the Voice Party to truly work together to gain a majority on campus so that the student's opinions 
are heard and put into action while taking away the inner party competition and allowing the goal to be 
to express the student's opinions. 

The Party now sits upon a secure and extremely active platform that shows their dedication to 
students. One such goal is to allow students to purchase tax free textbooks, and this goal is almost real- 
ized. A bill has been purposed to the Florida Legislature in the 2005 Legislative Session that abolishes the 
sales tax on textbooks. The Voice Party is also advocating the removal of the plus and minus system of 
grading at our University, as it has already been removed from other universities in Florida. This means that 
the grade point averages for our students are misrepresented through the deduction of points based on 
receiving a minus where as students at other Universities are not receiving any penalty for receiving the 
same grade. Safety for students is another goal; the Voice Party is advocating a more efficient S.A.F.E 
Connection program so that students may travel safely around campus and to surrounding areas safely 
at night 

As evident by the platform and structure of the Party at the heart of the Voice Party are the 
students. Their new and refreshing approach to politics places emphasis on the Party objective rather 
that the individual objectives within the Party. The Voice Party is truly uniting students who have not been 
able to find their voice in the University before, Collectively, these students are now being hea,rd through 
their new voice, the Voice Party.

"To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. 
This is power, it is glory on earth it is yours for the taking," says Agnes De Millie. 

Those who has the Phlava are right there with her. Dancing is not just 
about picking up difficult maneuvers, for as it is often said, "dancers are not 
made of their techniques, but of their passion." It is an experience that leaves an 
everlasting impression. Consequentially, an extraordinary group of dancers know 
as Phlava has done just that. 

Founded by Millicent Johnnie and Traci Young in 1999, Phlava has been 
leaving those same impressions on all of those who watch in awe each time they 
perform. Since becoming Florida State's first hip-hop and jazz company, Phlava 
Dance Company has grown in both size and popularity. With well over twenty 
members and numerous perspectives, these individuals showcased that power 
at several events both on and off campus. Including a performance at this year's 
FSU MLK Day Celebration, the group drew crowds to socials, activities, several 
other universities, the FSU Pow Wow, and in Washington D.C. at the John F. Ken- 
nedy Center. They also perform and teach classes in Prague, Czech Republic. 

Under the direction of Nationia Harrison and Celia Tortelli, these dancers 
are taught not only to be great dancers but above all, be great people. With a 
mission to expand and enlighten societal views in all areas of dance they hope to 
promote diversity. They take the love that they all have for dance and as a team 
they combine integrity, attitude, grace, and devotion to create a flavor that is 
rich and unique.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world" - Gandh 

Ever since conning to FSU I have been trying to find my niche, but life is not about finding yourself, life is about creating 
yourself. Creating is something I am good at 

FSU needs to start giving my family a deal on tuition. My whole family so far has come through these gates, my dad, 
mom. sister, brother and now me. with three more on their way. So from the start this was where I was going to end 
up. so the only application I sent out. 

For some odd reason yearbook has always been a passion of mine, as Allison would say. "we are yearbook nerds." I 
enjoy the designing, the compiling, the deadlines. I love to create a piece of work that evokes specific emotions and 
memories for those who look back on it. As much as I complained about the massive deadlines and all the hard work 
and all the drama, it's what kept me going some days. I spent some long days and nights in that yearbook office trying 
to make a dent in the work that needed to be done. 

Dedication is a funny thing. 

The first attempt of bringing the book back Fall 2004 fell through to find out that not many people on staff were com- 
pleting their responsibilities due to the lack of dedicated staff members. I went from a design staff position on the first 
attempt to the editor-in-chief for the second try because I felt like I had a drive and determination and had to see the 
project through till the end. And here we are. 

The year was filled with making new contacts and pulling as many strings as we could to get this publication off the 
ground. But one thing was for sure. I wouldn't let it fall through the cracks again. This is the first book published in ten 
years, and if it's the only one published for ten more, that's enough for me. 

Without money for advertising or workshops, with few dedicated staff members left, and running out of ideas, there 
were moments working on this project that I felt as if I was the only one left. What the hell was I wasting my time for? 
Then my few responsible editors would walk in with their pages done and asking about what else they could do. As 
corny as this sounds: this book would be nothing without you guys. Thank you so much for all your hard work, your 
dedication, your charisma, and your contribution to the book. 

About two weeks into the 2005 Fall semester I knew something had to change in my life. I tagged along to Wal-Mart 
and bought five different color highlighters and from that point on, my life was color coded. Between 40 hours a 
week in the yearbook office, trying to be there for my residents as an RA, making sure my grades were always up to 
par, and finding time for myself and keep my friendships intact, I'm amazed it only took five colors. To all my best-est 
friends in Tally-Ho, Erica my favorite and best you are my rock and my sanity, Nicole Nicole for the understanding and 
making me laugh, Kristin for the many nights of bitching and bitching, I seriously would have gone out of my mind 
without you, Jessy, Amy, Kim, Sara, Meghan, and all those not mentioned that could fill up all of these 336 pages with 
my gratitude. 

Thank you. 

For the many hours just letting me talk and cry and telling me it would come together thanks Donovan my love for 
always being there for me. "It's not done yet?" No mom, not yet. But now it is, Thanks to my family for their unending 
support in this stressing matter. 

Looking back there are many things about this publication and how it came to be that I would change, but I could 
never ask for better support that came in the making. Tim Quinnan in Student Affairs, those bi-weekly meetings kept 
me on the ball and felt like I was actually doing something right and holding it together. Our stupendous Taylor rep, 
Marvin Mayer, this year was a tough and busy one no doubt, but you were always there to make sure things were 
running smoothly and we got what we needed to see it through. 

Thank you. 

I am proud to say that it is finally done. And I hope years from now Seminoles who have long graduated can look back 
and feel the same feelings and remember the same good memories through this book. 

If you're going through hell, keep going..."

Moving from Wake Forest, North Carolina was 
a big step. Not sure what to do at such a huge 
campus was overwhelming, but yearbook 
was my first accomplishment. I interviewed 
with the advisor and became the Student Life 
& People editor, I am very thankful for the op- 
portunities I have received as an out-of-state 
freshman. While completing the sections, I 
learned which departments are in charge of 
the different activities and found out about 
RSOs, Now I am a member of the FSU Student 
Alumni Association. Without yearbook as a 
stepping stone, I would not have been able 
to find my first home away from home, Tal- 
ahassee, Florida.

It has been a pleasure to work on the Ren- 
egade staff this year. Bringing back this book 
after its long hiatus was a goal that all of the 
staff was dedicated to. We all wanted to 
create a book that would represent not only 
this year at Florida State but would also in- 
corporate the rich history of Florida State Uni- 
versity. Being a part of yearbook allows you 
to see so many aspects of Florida State that 
you never knew existed. This book started 
out as computer images, old newspaper 
stats and stacks of pictures. It has become 
a collection of memories, These pictures and 
words will never fade, or get deleted off of 
our computers; this book will forever serve as 
a reminder of our freshman, sophomore, ju- 
nior or senior year. I hope that this book will 
be well received by the school as well as the 
community and will serve as the benchmark 
of a new tradition at FSU.

Being from Miami people expect me to be a UM fan but. truth of 
the matter is, I have been a Seminole from the time I started think- 
ing about college. After playing college Softball and attending two 
universities. I realized there was something missing. So I quit play- 
ing softball. transferred once more, and attend Florida State. After 
being a wonderer and "college whore" I found what was missing 
about my college experience and it was all here at FSU. The Doak, 
tailgating at Indian Village, keggers, Yianni's. late nights at the Park 
Ave. Diner, Guthries at 3 a.m.. Pokey Sticks, homecoming week, 
intramurals and YEARBOOK were the missing puzzle pieces in my 
college life. It has been a pleasure and a great experience that I 
will never forget and live to tell my grandchildren about, 

I would like to give special thanks to those people who partook in 
my awesome ultimate college experience Robert, thank you for 
always being there for me and being the best boyfriend ever, Van- 
essa thanks for introducing me to wonderful people and helping 
me settle in to FSU, trust me you and Joe made my fall semester. 
Etta. ..geeze... what can I say other than "we did it" and thanks 
for being there in the Union 323 when I needed you. you know 
was your comic relief from yearbook . . . hah. To my wonderful com- 
mitted staff members Jessica T . Cody "Cory". Alison, Britt. Jessica 
P., Brianna, and Lauren thanks for your dedication and for those 
talks that drifted me away from deadline worries. To my new buds 
Steve. Mer. and Dan you guys are the best and this spring wouldn't 
have been the same without you. 

Florida State is now and will always be my home It gave me what 
was missing and made me whole; and I am proud to say I BLEED 

I am happy to have been a part 
of the Renegade staff. FSU was my 
first home away from home, and 
can't think of a better place to start 
my college experience. I attended 
my first football game, saw my first 
stand-up comedian, and ate my 
first Pokey Stix. I made friends who 
will never forget. Some of my favor- 
ite memories include Wednesday 
Night Dinners, journeys to Pitaria, 
crashing concerts, Phil Collins kara- 
oke, playing Balderdash, and not 
writing a paper to stay up all night 
talking and drinking tea. A part of 
me will always be a 'Nole! 

When I came to FSU my freshman year, I searched for the year 
book to work on and was amazed that FSU didn't have one; a 
university like ours should not be without! This year, my Junior 
year, I stumbled across it and ended up taking over as the Greek 
Life Editor Gust a few weeks into spring semester. WOW- what 
a task I had to start from scratch and try to get all greek orga- 
nizations (there are more than you think) in this book in only a 
couple of months 1 It was a big challenge which required me to 
be quite persistent, but I thank everyone who got their informa- 
tion into me! All in all, I did the best I could with the time given 
and I want to thank everyone that helped me accomplish it... 
Tiara Ball. Courtney Barry. Chris Koch. Kristen Leone, the rest of 
the staff (I am so grateful that we had dedicated people to help 
bring back a yearbook to this campus... we did it!). Etta (you're 
one amazing editorl), and Allison. Also, thanks to my family, my 
best friend- Kati, my roomie- Lisa, my Ly, all my KKG girls, and Mr. 
Kent (where my love for working on publications started). Work- 
ing on the Renegode has allowed me to become even closer to 
this amazing university and I wouldn't trade it for anything! 

'Live life fully while you're here Experience everything. Take care 
of yourself and your friends. Have fun. be crazy, be weird Go out 
and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy 
the process Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: 
find the cause of your problem and eliminate It. Don't try to be 
perfect; just be an excellent example of being human' 
-Anthony Robbins 

'The most wasted of all days is one without laughter' 
-E.E. Cummings 

- Florida State Uniuet-AiW - 


ankful for the opportunity to 
be part of the bringing back of the FSU 
Yearbook. I am grateful to be Co-edi- 
tor of the Photography section. I have 
been able to be on the sidelines of FSU 
memories and capture them for ev- 
eryone to remember. I had an amaz- 
ing Co-Editor, Cody Lewis, who was a 
great help and stuck with it even when 
we were swamped. I Look forward to 
seeing the Renegade succeed and be- 
coming a FSU tradition. 

Thank you to the FSU Renegade staff! 
And a HUGE THANK YOU TO Etta our 
wonderful Editor who put up with more 
than she should have. Thank you so 

Working on the Renegade has been the 
highlight of my first year at Florida State 
University. It has allowed me to interact 
with parts of this campus that I would never 
have known existed. I would like to take this 
opportunity to thank the staff of the Ren- 
egade for giving me the chance to attend 
athletic and special events. The highlights 
of which were the ACC Championship foot- 
ball game in Jacksonville and the Duke bas- 
ketball game. I would also like to thank the 
entire staff at Sports Information for work- 
ing seamlessly with our photography staff in 
our attempts to attain press passes. I have 
thoroughly enjoyed the events that I have 
been able to attend and look forward to an 
even more exciting experience next year. 
Lastly, I would like to thank Brianna Douthitt 
for involving me with the Renegade by con- 
vincing me to apply for a staff position. 

Henry Deane, Florida State junior, served as lead copy editor 
on the <em>Renegade</em>'s end cut. looks forward to a 
raduation in Fall 2007. Specialties include copywriting (writ- 
ten journalism), layout, production, research, public relations, 
editing and improving. He thrives on a overview approach 
ideology, closing, synthesizing detail and running with ideas. 

A yearbook is a funny thing. I've done a couple of these now, 
and I'm starting to make sense of many things that weren't 
as apparent when I was younger. I've edited them, written 
for them, taken pictures for and of them. I've sold them. But 
the powerful thing, the golden halo encircling the entire pro- 
cess for me is what the newsroom experience and the beat 
experience have done to change my approach. 

I'm a backwoods Floridd boy with more hair on my chest 
than my head. By nature, my energy is atomic and most defi- 
nitely, I'm a perfectionist. Taking down people's memories by 
picture ond word has been a canal through which to apply 
my energy: to give the page life. There is something alive in 
these books that, like well-blended, long-lived scotch, goins 
purity and beduty with age. Knowing that I've been a hand 
in this process gives me hope, not only for my own career, 
but for the life and health of an institution that I love. 

Danke FSU.
